Hi There, We have done a server migration, and copied over all the data, though unfortunately have come across a little bit of a snag when opening word documents.

Most if not all our documents use a document template. When opening one of these document's, it comes up with "Contacting: \\oldserver\bla\bla\bla\" on the splash screen for about 1-2 minutes before letting you in.

Is there a way of bulk updating the document template location as the thought of updating 5000 documents makes me want to jump off a cliff!!! ;)
