FP2000: Saving Office HTML File to a FrontPage Web Results in a Broken Hyperlink


View products that this article applies to.

Symptoms

When you save an Office HTML file to a FrontPage web, the file appears as a broken link in the Broken Hyperlinks report.

When you preview the page in the browser, the hyperlinks and images on the page work correctly.

Cause

When you use the "Save as web page" command, Office documents may create links to "filelist.xml", "editdata.mso", or "oledata.mso" in the HTML document. Because these files are not created, FrontPage cannot resolve the hyperlinks and will report them as broken hyperlinks.

Office applications may generate lines of code in the HTML source of the page that may be similar to the following:
<link rel=File-List href="./filename_files/filelist.xml">
				

<link rel=File-List href="./filename_files/editdata.mso">
				

<link rel=File-List href="./filename_files/oledata.mso">

Resolution

Although the page works correctly in the browser, you may use the following method to remove the files from the Broken Hyperlinks Report:
  1. In FrontPage, right-click the Office HTML file, and click Open With on the menu.
  2. In the Open With Editor dialog box, click to select Text Editor, and click OK.
  3. In the Office HTML file, remove the following hyperlink references.
    <link rel=File-List href="./filename_files/filelist.xml">
    					

    <link rel=File-List href="./filename_files/editdata.mso">
    					

    <link rel=File-List href="./filename_files/oledata.mso">
    					

  4. On the File menu, click Save.
