New LinkTek Product Lets Microsoft Office Users Move or Rename Files Without Creating Broken Links.

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, USA — LinkTek Corporation announced today the release of a new version of their LinkFixerPlus link maintenance and repair program, designed specifically for users of Microsoft Office. LinkFixerPlus for Microsoft Office ensures that links contained in Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint files are automatically maintained whenever linked files are moved or renamed. This newest version of LinkFixerPlus is part of LinkTek’s continuing series of releases that empower the program to work with an ever-increasing variety of popular file formats.

Professional users of Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint routinely have links contained in their files. And often they are faced with a special problem: what to do when they want to move or rename these files. As soon as any of these files (or the folders they reside in) are moved or renamed, broken links are created.

If moving or renaming a file or a folder causes only a few broken links, the problem is not severe. The user can manually open each file and manually edit each broken link. But what if moving or renaming files or folders would cause dozens or hundreds of broken links?

This is the problem that LinkTek Corporation’s new patent-pending product, LinkFixerPlus for Microsoft Office solves. Using LinkFixerPlus for Microsoft Office, end-users of Microsoft Office can easily move or rename hundreds of their Word, Excel and PowerPoint files, and the files they link to, in batch, and have all of the links maintained totally automatically!

LinkFixerPlus for Microsoft Office gives users the ability to:

  • Rename or move linked files, in batch, using sophisticated rename rules, without causing broken links in the files that point to them.
  • Safeguard healthy links in files, allowing them to be automatically fixed when they become broken.
  • Fix broken links in safeguarded files totally automatically.
  • Generate a broken link report listing all files containing broken links, so they can be fixed before causing problems.
  • Generate a regular report listing each file followed by a list of the files it links to.
  • Generate a cross-reference report listing each linked file followed by a list of all the files that point to it.
  • Report whether a file is being pointed to by any Word, Excel or PowerPoint file anywhere on a user’s system, thereby letting the user know whether the file is safe to delete.
  • Fix hundreds of broken links in large sets of files with a single command using sophisticated global search and replace operations.

LinkFixerPlus for Webmasters was first introduced at the Fall 2002 Internet World convention in New York City, where it won Best of Show in the design category. Since that time, LinkFixerPlus has been mentioned on CNNfn, CNET Radio, the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal.

Microsoft Office users can learn more about LinkFixerPlus by calling +1-727-442-1822 extension 8543 in the United States or e-mailing linkmail@linktek.com. A limited-time introductory discount is available by calling the phone number above. LinkFixerPlus is compatible with most versions of Windows.
