hyperlinks changed automatically in excel.



I have a worksheet with hyperlinks to result files in one directory.
Somehow all the links were changed .
Some to
C:\Documents and Settings\MAM\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\OLK31\
some to
but they were all changed from the correct path of

Which actions could I of taken to change these without physically editing
the hyperlink.

I had quite a few of the data sheets open but not all that were changed.
I am very puzzled and it it quite a bit of work to correct it.

How can I avoid this problem from happening again.

PS. I did not move the data it is still in the place it always was.

A few people have said that this has resolved the problem for them:

File|Properties|Summary Tab|Hyperlink Base

I like to use the =hyperlink() worksheet function. It has never failed me this

=hyperlink("file:////yourpathtothe/something.xxx","Click me")

You could use the code from David McRitchie's site:

look for:
