I'm not sure what relative links are.  If you mean setting the path in
the link, I don't want to do this because the files are stored in
several locations.  Even if I standardised on one location, there is no
real discipline in the file structure and there is too much chance of
the file path changing.

I was under the impression that years ago, Word would automatically
looked in folders beneath the current folder if it could not find the
file in the current folder, but this does not seem to happen any more
(2002).  Does anyone know how to make it do this?
