PowerPoint with links to Excel charts - links broken if files are moved or copied
Posted on 2011-03-09
I have a PowerPoint doc that has links to an Excel
file. These were built to automate the process of creating business
presentations. We want to be able to share both the Excel and PowerPoint
without corrupting the links, but the only way we have been able to
successfully do that is by emailing both docs and having the recipient
move both files from their email to their desktop. If we put them on the
Public drive only one person can use them at the same time. We also
tried placing them in the public folder but found that if a user moves
it from the Public folder to their desktop the links are corrupted.
Is there a solution where we can share these files without breaking the links?
