We are running SharePoint 2013 and document sets that have an excel file and a PowerPoint presentation both in the document set folder and we have mapped this to a unc path \\SP.companyname.com\@SSL\DavWWWRoot\Documents

Once a link(graph) is added from Excel 2010 (Ctrl C) then go into PowerPoint 2010 Paste > paste special > paste link (As Microsoft Excel Chart Object) click "OK" the graph goes into the PowerPoint presentation.

The graph is added but in Power point 2010. Perfect.

The problem is when we close excel and try and click on the graph(link) we get the following error “The Server application, source file, or item can’t be found, or returned an unknown error. You may need to reinstall the server application”

If we right click then we get

The Linked file was unavailable and can’t be updated

Has anybody else experienced this issue? We are running SharePoint 2013 and document sets that have the excel file and PowerPoint in and we have mapped this to a unc path \\SP.companyname.com\@SSL\DavWWWRoot\Documents

I think that Office 2010 does not link or cannot link to a url which it see the unc path as?? It works in Office 2013 but we have Office 2010 as standard across the firm also I have tried SP1 and SP2 for Office 2010 but still no joy

Is anybody else experencing this issue? Is there at least a work around?
