Unhappy I need help with PowerPoint

I am working in MS PowerPoint 2003 and MS Producer. I put a PowerPoint in producer that has a link. I want it to link to a document in the same folder as the producer document but If I give this folder to someone on a different computer I still want it to work. Can I do this If not can I do something with the same effect?

Open for suggestion,

it depends on how you implemented the link. PP should allow you to use dynamic linking, just as it is done in webpages start the link with:
this informs the program or device to start looking in the current location, as opposed to typing in an entire path, eg:
C:\\some folder\some file.ext
if your 2 files are in the same directory it should be as simple as making the link:
or possibly in windows:
some programs are picky about the direction of the slash.
