If I'm understanding correctly, both what you've described and how the links work.... I don't think you can link to documents located on a different computer. Unless the files are located in a location that is shared for both computers

quick tip that may help here- i have done the same thing. and if you create a new folder on your new computer where the excel files are stored and the word document is in the same folder too - the link will work on new computer IF IT IS the same directory name as on old computer- does this make sense? it seems word looks for the directory address in teh link and if youve changed it wont find it - so the simplest solutionis to create the same directory on new pc as on old- or jusr redo the links
