    Excel 2007 & Windows XP

    Heres the problem, on the server i have a folder: Estimates, inside this is a list of folders with estimate numbers and a template folder
    inside the template folder there are two folders, 1 with build up sheets, and 2 with device sheets. each of these link to each other seeking inputs and out puts.
    i only recently needed to add the links to make it more complicated to handle much larger estimates

    what i need to do is copy the template folder into each new estimate i create - the problem is, when i do the links still link to the original template - i need the links to remain relative

    i know if i copy two xl files side by side that are linked to another location the links remain relative, but can this be done when they reside in different folders, and how.

    if this cant be done can anyone suggest a different method all together - or a program that can hold all this and my estimates can be built in??

    any help would be much appreciated
    my boss is leaning on me to get this done asap
