Using PowerPoint 2003 and saving a document on the fileserver. Within the document there is a hyperlink to a document located on another location on the same file server.

My original hyperlink:

\\fileserver\folder1\document.doc

After I save the PowerPoint document, it's rewritten to:

../../folder1/document.doc

I know relative paths is usually better than absolute, but I need this to be an absolute path. The document will be published to different recipients by email, and with relative paths the hyperlink is worthless.

Help me please... :)
