LinkFixerPlus Provides 400% Faster Repair of Broken Links within Microsoft Word Files by Using Direct File Access

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, USA — LinkTek Corporation, a leading provider of data migration software, announced today the release of a new version of their LinkFixerPlus link maintenance and repair program, designed specifically for use with Microsoft Excel files.

LinkFixerPlus for Microsoft Excel ensures that links contained in Excel files are automatically maintained whenever files are moved or renamed.

LinkTek’s newest version of LinkFixerPlus for Microsoft Excel now provides direct binary file access to link information contained within Excel files, as compared to previously providing indirect file access by using the Microsoft Excel application server.

By performing direct file access, LinkFixerPlus for Microsoft Excel provides IT professionals with significant benefits including:

  • 400% increase in Excel file processing speeds as compared to previous versions.
  • Ability to process Excel links contained within protected spreadsheets.
  • Ability to bypass user-defined macros that previously could hinder processing speeds.
  • Microsoft Excel is no longer required by LinkFixerPlus to process links in Excel files.

IT professionals who are tasked with moving end-users’ Excel files when conducting data migrations, due to server consolidations, server name changes, path name changes or folder reorganizations, must also contend with the problem of ensuring that links contained with the files are not broken as a result of the move.

This is the problem that LinkFixerPlus for Microsoft Excel solves. It has been designed so that IT professionals can automate the reporting, management and repair of links in Microsoft Excel files, and a wide variety of other types of files so they won’t have to worry about broken links as a result of files being moved or renamed.

LinkFixerPlus is the first software application that can fix broken links automatically in Excel, Word, Access, PowerPoint, PageMaker, InDesign, AutoCAD, PDF and HTML file types when files or folders are moved or renamed. Using patented technology, LinkFixerPlus helps eliminate the time-consuming and tedious process of manually finding and fixing broken links. Additionally, LinkFixerPlus can create a variety of detailed reports, in Comma Separated Value (CSV) or HTML formats, showing all of the links contained within files, including any broken links.

First introduced at the Internet World convention in New York City, LinkFixerPlus won the Best of Show award in the design category. Since that time, LinkFixerPlus has been favorably reviewed by industry experts on: Computer America talk radio, CNET radio, CNNfn, PC Magazine, Entrepreneur Magazine, Cadalyst Magazine, the Washington Post, the New York Times, Computer World and the Wall Street Journal.
