Hyperlink- global source reference

Post by Princy557 » Wed Jan 25, 2017 12:11 pm

HI,
I have successfully got a PM workbook which is basically a worksheet with references to various hyperlinks to documents (TM), spreadsheets (PM) and actual weblinks, this works well and there are many hyperlinks on this page.
However I would like to transfer this to another PC and use on an NAS as the source drive. So where I
hyperlink to 'C:/Filefolder/subfolder/File/doc.pmdx
there must be 35 links that have to be changed to X:/DifferentFolder/subfolder/file/doc.pmdx

Is there a way to make a change where I might have a single cell in the workbook as a reference to the actual drive
say worksheet driveinfo, Cell a1 would contain drivedetails which could be used to replace part of the hyperlink.

Basic idea would be that I would only ever have to make a single change to my main worksheet to make all the links work!

Hope that makes sense? :o
Regards

Instead of an absolute path you could use a relative file path in your links:

Strange, I clicked on the link and it brought me directly to the page. Please try again with http ://www .actuarialoutpost .com/actuarial_discussion_forum/showthread.php?t=257933 (remove all empty spaces I made to avoid the automatic URL shortener).

Hi Sven,
Thanks. I had not seen the embeded spaces, probably because my font is too small. Changing it ...
I'll be reading all the mails shortly.
