Links within documents

  Asked By: Jasmine    Date: Oct 17    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1279

I have this small problem.

My users want to be able to put links from documents stored within
SPS to other documents also stored within SPS. It's a very easy
process and they are able to do it (i.e. insert a hyperlink, find the
document, OK, easy), the problem is the links that are inserted
include the version number for the document (i.e.
http://server/documents/filename(1.1).doc) and if a new version of
the document is published, the links break (document not found)..

Am I doing something wrong, or is there a workaround?

use as their link.

they area accessing the document  internally or externally, true? In
which case, it wont always work.

Sometimes we have the same problems.
Another problems that occurs frequently is that the link is:

The environment that I have set up in my office is that the employees
use the full FQDN whether they are internal or external, they don't ever
use the NetBIOS name. So I don't have this problem.
