Excel/Link Files


Dear Sir,

I work in a finance department in a banking industry. i have work in excel in frequent manner.

Actually, I always make a budget and other financial with a link from different files source from same Folder in my computer. Currently, I want to share the whole folder with my workmate but all link file of excel donot work as it do in my computer.

Please let me know how can i solve this issue.


I'm not 100% sure what issue you are describing here, but it sounds as though it may relate to the type of reference in the link - as long as the folder is networked so you both have access to it, you should be able to resolve the problem - see https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=excel+links+relative+path&sourceid=ie7&rls=com.microsoft:en-gb:IE-SearchBox&ie=&oe=&safe=images&gfe_rd=cr&ei=3v0iU7ayJ6HR8geIv4Eg for a suggested list of resources.

I have provided first hand support since `95 for Microsoft Office majoring in Word and Excel - support for all versions from 2 onwards. I'm based in the UK, so please allow for time differences when asking me questions from other parts of the world!


My background is in the insurance industry and call centre areas, but have been called upon to provide many varied solutions.

I'm educated to UK A level standard, but as I left school some 30 years ago that is rather irrelevent - university of life has provided more of a background!
