If a Microsoft Excel worksheet contains a hyperlink to a cell on another worksheet in the same workbook, and the workbook is posted to a Microsoft Exchange public folder, the hyperlink will not work. When you click the hyperlink, you receive the following error message:

An unexpected error has occurred (HRESULT= 0004005)


Microsoft Excel has no physical reference for the location of the hyperlink (for example, c:\Mydocs\Test.xls) when it is stored in a public folder. A Microsoft Excel 97 hyperlink needs a physical disk and file location as a reference to work correctly.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Microsoft Exchange Server version 5.0. This problem was corrected in the latest Microsoft Exchange Server 5.0 U.S. Service Pack. For information on obtaining the service pack, query on the following word in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
