I have inserted a "Word" object icon into an Excel file (Tab 1) and then used
paste link to display data updates from other tabs in the same Excel file in
the Word document that is in Tab 1. I am looking for a way to have the links
from the Excel Tab 1 file that are in the Word file automatically updated and
independent of the Excel filename.

Problem is that when I put the Word document icon into the Excel file, open
it, paste link data from the same Excel file and then rename the Excel file
later the links are not automatically reflecting the new Excel name. The new
Excel file name is showing "invalid link" references when I open the Word
document inserted in the original file.

I would appreciate anyone's assistance to find a workable solution so that I
don't have to have users trying to manually changing file links everytime
they rename their baseline Excel file that has the inserted Word document.

Thanks, David
