I have a spreadsheet which was created in Excel XP which has hyperlinks to other documents which work. I made that spreadsheet a read-only for other people to use and have access to other read-only documents. The hyperlink is changing the slashes. For example:

The hyperlink on my sheet says:

c:cowchickenpighorse.xls

The read-only pulled up in Excel 2000 shows:

c:cowchickenpig/horse.xls

Is there a patch? or Am I doing something incorrectly?
 

Excel Facts

What do {} around a formula in the formula bar mean?
{Formula} means the formula was entered using Ctrl+Shift+Enter signifying an old-style array formula.

Nevermind, I think we figured it out. It appears to be a problem with modifying/creating a document in Excel 2002 and reading it in Excel 2000. Do you think there is a patch?
