How do I kill the links to an outside source in a Word document?
posted by jimmysmits to Computers & Internet (7 answers total)
I've been using an Excel/Word setup that someone else created (who is no longer there) at my job to merge data from excel fields into a word document. After some trial and error, I've got that up and running fine, but now I'd like to be able to save a final copy of the word document that kills the links and just treats the input as regular text (because now when I try to open the document on another computer it wants access to the original spreadsheet that the inputted data comes from).
Sorry if I'm not being ultra clear- should be obvious that I'm not terribly fluent in this stuff. I managed to google my way into getting the setup to work generally (using Mail Merge), but this last piece is going to be important and I'm having trouble sorting it out alone.
