Hi All,

 

When migrating excel documents from the file server to SharePoint Online I have found that if the excel spread sheets are in the same document library then the links work. If the excel spreadsheets are in different document libraries they do not work. Whats the best / recommended approach to migrating such types of documents that does not involve using a third party tool?

I strongly suspect that is precisely what you will need: A third party tool.
