    I have an issue with the Bookmarks in excel.
    I have created a hyperlink, no problem, many of them in the same sheet.
    Due to the large directory tree I have here, I thought I would be clever and "Bookmark" using the bookmark button, a folder halfway through the directory tree, to save some time from having to drive down through the directory structure each time.
    In doing this, I now have a situation that whenever I create a new hyperlink, it goes to the folder I have bookmarked.
    This happens even when I go back and edit the hyperlink, again & again!
    It also happend when I open a new workbook! Tried hyperlinking to a completely different drive, always goes back to the original bookmark.
    I would really like to remove this, or at least understand how to edit/change this!
    I'm currently using excel 2003.
    Any help would be really appreciated.
    Thanks!

    To better manage large spread sheet check out the Group and UnGroup tool bar buttons. They are found in the 'Data' part of "view \ tool bars \ customize . For example you could 'collapse' all companies that start with "A" and expand when you want to see one.

    Sorry, I've never messed with the Bookmark!

    Thanks! I'll certainly give that at try. It may assist in the future.
    I'm still stuck with the same link every time I create a hyperlink though.....
    [Even when I use a new work book!]
