I have a worksheet with approximately 1,000 hyperlinks to other documents.
I want to re-arrange the referenced documents, but if I move them to other directories the hyperlinks don't "follow" them.
Is there any way the hyperlinks can be made to follow the moved files?

Hi,

Create a shortcut to each hyperlinked document , place all these shortcuts in a folder and hyperlink the shortcuts instead of the actual target documents.

Now, even if you move the documents to different locations, the shortcuts will always point to the new document paths therefore the embeeded hyperlinks in your worksheet will always work as expected.

Regards.

Thanks for the help. Unfortunately the hyperlinks are already set up and setting up over 1,000 shortcuts will take too long.
I'll do what you suggest if I ever do a similar project.
