Yes, you need to find where the files that you linked to are currently
located. They were either moved or deleted from the network or your
computer. I suggest that you try to update your links.
To update a link:
1. Select Links from the Edit menu.
2. Click Change Source.
3. Browse to locate file.
4. Click Update Now.
5. Click OK.
