How to stop or correct Sharepoint 2007 modifying file locations


I have a Word document that is located at non-Sharepoint location XYZ. This word document has multiple hyperlinks contained within the body of the document. When I try and load this document to a document library it first changes the XYZ location of the original document to the location where Sharepoint resides. THEN, it modifies ALL of the hyperlinks to a subset of the Sharepoint location. I am at my wits end as to how to stop this from happening.


Original File location  Z:\Power\Procedures\somedocument.doc

After upload http:\\ap15\power\procedures\somedocument.doc

The ORIGINAL document is basically a Table of Contents that is several pages long and has several hundred links pointing to different file locations embedded within the body.

I am totally baffled as to how to stop this from happening. At some point all of the documents will get moved to the Sharepoint server, but in the interim I just want to link to the old document, in the old location, with the original links such that everyone isn't going crazy that our procedures are missing in action. HELP.

Unable to open an Excel File in Sharepoint MOSS 2007


I am unable to open an excel file in Sharepoint (MOSS 2007). All other documents work fine. As far as I know there was no change on the Server at all.

Excel found unreadable content in 'stuff.xls'. Do you want to recover the contents of this workgroup? If you trust the source of this workbook , click Yes

When I click YES >> It says "Excel recovered your formulas and cell values, but some data may have been lost." And then a link to an xml file , which reads :

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes" ?>
- <recoveryLog xmlns="http://schemas.openxmlformats.org/spreadsheetml/2006/main">
  <summary>Errors were detected in file 'http://server_name/Project_name/Shared Documents/abc - def/Phase 5/Track/stuff.xls'</summary>
- <additionalInfo>
  <info>Excel recovered your formulas and cell values, but some data may have been lost.</info>

Now this has resulted in huge loss of data and I can see New numbers in the cells which is very strange!

Is there a way I can get it back ? I do not have a

Adding a Description to a File in Sharepoint 2007


Hi All,

Silly question, but how do you add a file description to the Description field in a library?

I can see the field, it’s just empty and I can’t update it!

I thought it was done with the ‘manage properties’ option on the drop down menu that each file has – but no.

Can anyone help please? I’m sure it’s something obvious!
