    Cannot Open A File After Moving It


    At the office, I created an excel file in my PC, then I created a shortcut (C:\Oka\Documents\) of the file to the desktop. After using the file for some days, I moved this file to a flash drive. At the office I can open the file from the flash drive.

    At home, I cannot open the same file.

    Looking at the properties of the file, I realized in the 'Shortcut' tab, the file got 'hard coded'
    it's original file path (C:\Oka\Documents\).

    I renamed the file and still cannot open it at home PC. I created an 'equal' path at the
    home computer (C:\Oka\Documents\Exterior Column Count.xlsx), copied the file into it,
    still I cannot open it.

    Will try to open it again from the Office PC, save as to a different name. The issue is,
    am off until Monday, in four days but would like to have a solution on such issue in
    case of next time.
    Thank you.

    :)

    PowerPoint file crashes PowerPoint upon opening

    since this happens in some of the computers only, suggest that you open the file on working computer and copy everything and paste to a new powerpoint file.
    most of the time it works to me. *Smile Cannot Open A File After Moving It :)
