Works with me using the Insert Hyperlink feature of Word 2000. If I browse to the file, Word inserts the filename only, not the full path.
In fact, if I save the document to another location, Word automatically changes the content of the link to point to the original file with a relative address, not an absolute address. Where it is now, Word made it ..\temp\myfile.doc while it started as myfile.doc when both files where in the temp folder. A very smart program, Word 2000. Have a look at the properties of the hyperlink (right click) yourself. If you had done so yourself, you probably wouldn't even has asked the question, because the answer is there.
I didn't burn the resulting files to a CD, but I'm rather sure that if I made the folder structure on the CD the same as on my hard disk it would work.
Hope this helps.
I'm currently writing on a huge document and would like to include links to other files.
Currently I am only able to include the whole directory to the file, which makes it very difficult for other readers when the file is not in the same location.
The Word File is in "C:\ProjectXY"
Current file: "C:\ProjectXY\LinkedFiles\linkedfile.pdf"
The reader has the whole ProjectXY File, but on CD and the CD-Rom letter is maybe F:\. Therfore the directory is actually: "F:\ProjectXY\LinkedFiles\linkedfile.pdf".
My question now is:
Is there a possibily to only add the subfolders. Meaning, that word knows where the current File is located and only the following link has to be provided:
Any answer is appreciate! Thank you very much!
