We are migrating to a Citrix platform. Right now all Excel files are stored on the file server. We have links between Excel spreadsheets. If I open Excel on Citrix and open the file off the file server, it tells me the links cannot be find and we need to reestablish them. Wouldn't mind but there are 75 links. Is there anyway to migrate the links?

    2. If your users have used mapped drivers, try to use the same letter and point to the same sub directories.
