Relative paths in Word

Unfortunately relative paths don't always seem to work and I haven't
been able to work out how to get the pictures to appear every time.

Sometimes they appear as they should, sometimes a simple F9 (Update
fields) does the trick, sometimes the only thing to do is to relink.

Can anyone out there help?

I've had this problem too, and never quite got to the bottom of it,
but I suspect that the archive status of the linked graphic file makes
a difference. I know it shouldn't, and can't see why it should, but it
is worth a try!
