Trouble updating links in Microsoft Word

New Contributor

I am trying to update links in my word file to pull from a file in one folder to instead pull from an (absolutely) identical file in another folder.

I clicked Alt + F9 to reveal the field codes.

I used "find and replace" to enter in the new path - but now the links are completely dead.

I can copy in a new link directly which works and see the field code is*exactly* the same as the find and replace one, but the find and replace never comes back to life. 

Can anyone help?

Sorry - I managed to do it. The key to reactivate the deadlinks was to highlight them (or the whole document for ease) and click F9.
