Environment: WSS 3.0 SP2 running on Server 2008 Standard R2
We recently have been experiencing an issue whereby a Word or Excel doc containing links to other files on a network share gets uploaded into a document list, after which, the links in the document get changed.
For example, a document contains links to other files on \\Server1\Share1\Docs. When I upload this file to the document list on the SharePoint site and open it, the links have been changed to http://site.domain.com/docs. Therefore, the files cannot be found when you click the links.
The odd part is, this worked just fine before the file server was upgraded from Server 2003 to 2008. (Why this would have any effect, I don't understand)
So far, the Microsoft SharePoint support engineer can't even figure it out. Anyone ever seen this before? If so, what causes it? Any advice you could give would be much appreciated!
