    I started running into an issue when migrating users from Office 97 to Office 2000. The issue is these users have a template they created with a linked image of the company logo. In Word 97 this worked great and the image always appeared and printed out for them to have a hard copy. Now with Word 2000 any images they link from a shared drive does not re-appear when opening the document or printing it. It shows that it is being linked to the image (they have a tiff created for the image), but you still get nothing viewable. They have all the lates updates for Office 2000 SP3 being the big one of course. I have not been able to find a thing on technet. Any tips would be appreciated.

    I have no clue about your linking issue, as I never saw the use for it. If you have multiple users using a standard template that contains the shared logo, why don't you share the template instead of relying on a linked Logo.

    Or, Insert the image instead of linking it.

    I agree. I think inserting the image is the best way. Granted, the file becomes a bit larger but you resolve the problem. Also if someone accidentally deletes the linked image, your document will not be complete.
