This is a strange one. We have an Excel file that has various business stats in it. It is linked to many reports. If I open one particular report, I am prompted to update values, all is good and I save the file. If my co-worker opens it up, she is prompted to update and is told that the file cannot be found. She hits Change source, points to EXACTLY where Excel said it couldn't find it and then it updates the links and Excel is happy. Now she saves it. When I open it again, now I am told that the file cannot be found! So I point it to the EXACT file that it said it couldn't find in the exact location it said it couldn't find it, and now my links update. This cycle goes on indefinitely. What is going on here? How can I correct this?

Thanks.
