Troubleshooting

Updating Links Between Files

Q1:The Excel data that I linked to a PowerPoint slide seems to be broken. Whenever I change the data in Excel, these edits aren't reflected in PowerPoint. How do I fix the link?
A1: Switch to the application containing the link (PowerPoint, in this example), and choose Edit, Links. Then, select the link you want to reconnect from the Links list box and choose the Change Source button. In the Change Source dialog box, select the file you want the linked object to connect to (select another folder from the Look In list, if necessary). Choose the Open button. The file you chose appears in the Links dialog box; choose Close to close the dialog box. The updated link information appears in the application.

Editing an Existing Hyperlink

Q1:I need to make changes to an existing hyperlink, but when I try to click the hyperlink to select it, I jump to the file referenced in the hyperlink. How do I edit the hyperlink?
A1: Right-click the hyperlink. Then choose Hyperlink, Edit Hyperlink from the shortcut menu. Make the desired changes in the dialog box, and then choose OK.

If you just want to make simple formatting changes to the hyperlink (such as using a different font or adding italic), right-click the hyperlink and choose Hyperlink, Select Hyperlink. Then use the menus or toolbars to format the text, as usual. Click outside of the hyperlink to deselect it.
