Move It, But Don’t Lose It
One way you can use LinkFixer Advanced would be to use it to do your migration or folder system changes for you. With the Move/Rename tool, you can quickly move and rename batches of files, with LinkFixer Advanced automatically handling all the links so that they don't break in the process.
Stressbuster for a Foolproof Move
Guess who won’t have to worry about any broken links related to your Excel files (or almost any other files too, for that matter)? Yup, you. And you can move and/or rename thousands of files and folders at the same time without breaking a single link.
Options That Work for You
But what if you have to use a certain application for your data migration?
Even if you don’t use LinkFixer Advanced to do the actual migration, it can still fix broken links for you — or prevent them from breaking in the first place.
Take Control of the Excel File Links Referencing Other Files
Using LinkFixer Advanced, you can protect or adjust hyperlinks, object links and “paste special” links. LinkFixer Advanced offers significant benefits including:
- Fast processing speeds.
- Ability to process Excel links contained within protected cells and spreadsheets.
- Ability to edit links and bypass problematic user-defined macros that could otherwise hinder processing speed.
Detailed Link Reporting
In addition to protecting good links or fixing broken links after data migration, LinkFixer Advanced can easily create a variety of detailed reports showing all the links within your Microsoft Excel files. These reports can help you easily identify and fix any links that are not working — which means you avoid data loss, and that’s a big win for the whole team.
Need a broken links checker?
If you want to know how many links are contained in your data, where they're located, what they link to, and what their status is, you need a broken link checker. Link Reporter is a free tool that will supply all the insight you need on your links.
