    I have Excel 2007 on my computer but save this particular file as a 2003 file to allow others easier access. The Excel file has many hyperlinks to documents posted in the same folder. It seems like the links stop working over time. When I run my cursor over the link it is still there and also is correct in its direction. It just won't take me to the document.

    I need to know if there is an easy way to correct these links or whether I have to reenter them (hope not - there are over 100) or how to keep this problem from reoccurring.

    In general a link will alwyas work unless the reference is changed somewhere.
    I don't think it's version dependant but that I can't tell from here.
    Do these links trigger a amcro ro just link to a file?
    If it's a macro, maybe the macro security doesn't allow for macro's to be used?
