Created a Softlink for a Excel sheet using the following command, in Unix shared file system.

temp$ ln -s temp1/Main.xlsm Link.xlsm

But when I view the temp directory in Windows, Link.xlsm appears as a Folder. While I am able to access temp1/Main.xlsm in windows, I get a error when I click temp/Link.xlsm,

<Network_Drive>/temp/Link.xlsm refers to the location that is unavailable. 

However I can access Link.xlsm using UNC path
