In our team we have a shared folder with all the documents. Most documents contain hyperlinks to other documents.

From time to time, we move some files and links get broken.

I need a tool that checks all documents in a specific folder, and shows the broken links to other documents.

We need this mainly for MS-Word 2010, but also for Excel 2010.

What did not work: AbleBits Link Checker does not find the broken links.

Have you considered just writing a quick macro to do this? – Adam Jul 10 '13 at 14:34
A VBA macro? Could this scan a full directory tree? (I dont' have VBA skills) – Synox Jul 12 '13 at 9:27
Yes, have a search on the internet and you might find a similar macro where you can start from. – Adam Jul 14 '13 at 13:49

1 Answer 1

Found a product that is designed to find and report broken links and even fix broken links in Office files.

See LinkFixer Advanced.
