Breaking links in Publisher 2002 (XP)

Hello, I am attempting to decrease the total file size of 
a Publisher file by breaking the links as you can in Word 
with Excell-linked graphics.  There is no option to break 
links under the "edit:links" menu, and the option to break 
links isn't possible under the commercial printing tools 
menu.  Does anyone know of a different way to go about 

Please e-mail me at

What if you moved the files it wants to be linked to? I've found that'll
break those links in a heartbeat.

Out of interest, why would breaking links decrease the filesize?

I was just thinking the very same thing and I've come to the same
conclusion - it wouldn't.

Linking directly to CRM
Is there any way to create hyperlinks that will pop up windows pointing to specific instances of CRM entities. Either in Read only or editable form? Not 100% sure if this is what you mean, but... If you open up a contact detail screen in your CRM, and hit F11 on your keyboard, it will reveal the url of that specific screen - it should look similar to this: http://yourservername/sfa/conts/edit.aspx?id={6505B000-A555-462A-A45A-C907246F55AF} And any user, which appropriate permissions and roles, can use that url to view that specific contact detail record.

Cannot Run Money 2002 After Installing on Windows XP
I installed Money 2002 on my system after reburning it with Windows XP. I get the error message "Unable to initialize a required Money component...".

I am creating a quote template in excel. To get the correct 'look and feel', I have used borders. This is fine if the quote can be contained on a single printed sheet, however, as soon as I go into a second page, I cannot get the border to recognise a page break. In other words, I have a series of vertical border lines but no horizontal border to signafy the end of one page and the start of another - Can this be automated? Many thanks! Excel 2002 ...

Users are reporting that when they save an excel spreadsheet, that when they re open it, the embedded links re point from their G drive to their H or local C drives. Sometimes the link is substituted by random words. I know that this sounds virus related but can find no fix for it on the web. FWIW With multiple users I have to suspect them first <grin>. I hav noticed a tendency to get problems when linked files are :- 1. Not in the same folder as the main file. 2. The user's currently active folder (check with File/Open) i different.

Page Breaks

Sharepoint Linked Table
Hi! I just inherited an Access 2003 database which has a linked table to Sharepoint (dbo_...) without any problem. When you view the actual table from Sharepoint it only has 5 fields, but in Access 2003 have 12 fields. It gets updated without any issue. We are in the process of converting to Access 2007 and the linked table is different from Access 2003. Most of the columns are dropped. Would anyone know how I can keep the same exact column layout (# of columns) as in 2003? This is necessary, because in the code, the linked table updates the local table. Also, we must leave as is, beca...

A Linking Problem

If I add a new row 5 to the source, is there a way I can get the previously linked cells in Destination to continue to display the correct values. After adding the new row 5 in source, rows in Destination below row 5 display values from rows below (in the Source file). I hope this is not too confusing a question (I am confused). If it of importance, the linking was done using Paste Link in the Paste Special dialog. Thanks. Hi PA Yo...
