I want to create MS Word document Instructions.docx with the following text.
Step 1. Choose a doctor. For details click link1.
Step 2. Schedule the appointment. For details click link2.
MS Word makes it easy to make link1 point to \\server\step1.docx and link2 point to \\server\step2.docx.
But, I sometimes want to mall the document to someone that is not on our server.
When they open the document and click on the link, they get an error message "cannot open specified file".
Is there a way to save Instructions.docx with the link embedded?
It should work so that people that are connected to the server get the most recent version of the link target, but people who are not connected get the old version of the link target as it was when instructions.docx was saved.
