CLEARWATER, FL, July 24, 2003 — LinkTek Corporation

Professional users of Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint
routinely have links contained in their files. And often
they are faced with a special problem: what to do when they
want to move or rename these files. As soon as any of these
files (or the folders they reside in) are moved or renamed,
broken links are created.
If moving or renaming a file or a folder causes only a few
broken links, the problem is not severe. The user can
manually open each file and manually edit each broken link.

dozens or hundreds of broken links?
