trouble linking excel http path to http word document

    Hi, I'm trying to link a cell range on an excel file to a word document so
    that when the word document is opened it has the most up to date budget
    information from the excel file. I can do this locally on my pc, and I can
    also link a local document to an excel file over an http path, but I can't do
    http to http. I'm trying to accomplish this on my Sharepoint site.

    I can't get it to work properly with office 2003 or 2007. I even tried the
    hotfix from MS for the 2003 version. Here is a link to the error I get in
    both versions: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/947583.

    Anyone know if there are Sharepoint configuration changes I can make to make
    this work better? Or is this an application problem. I called MS and they
    said it's a known issue, but not something of importantce.

    Also, I've also been looking through group policy and I can't find any
    options that disable the prompt to update links (Update automatic links at
    Open) doesn't seem to work.

    Thanks for any direction,
    Matt
