Word links breaking
Hello. I have a document in a SP library. One section of this documents has about 10 links to other Word documents in the same library and folder. Every time someone opens this document, the links break, because instead of pointing to the correct link on SharePoint, they revert to pointing to the individual's C drive. Why is this happening and how can I stop it? Thanks

Has anybody else seen this behavior?

One update:If you check the document out and open it, the links are fine.If you just open the document to use it, without checking it out of SP, the links break as they change to your C drive.
