Hello Everyone
I have a 200 page word doc that was sent to me...
All the links they created point back to their users file.. I am going to upload the doc's to our website so anyone can use these links...

Question Is
Does anyone know to do a mass hyperlink change in Word 2007?
I've tried the find/replace and it ignore's hyperlinks....
I really dont want to go through and manually replace each link..
Ideas???

The problem I am having is, These 2 reprots are on a flash drive
So every time someone plug's it in a PC the drive letter is alaways different.
These files can't be made public, but i need access to them from this report from anywhere.
Any ideas?

Try setting a permanent drive letter to the flash drive (if you have admin privs to drive management)

In regards to the hyperlinks, I recommend that you use relative paths

Once this is done, i have to load it to a flash drive and send to the state of MI... i am thinking of uploading them to Google Doc's so they have a URL
