When you save a Microsoft Office Visio 2003 drawing as a Web page, hyperlinks from one page of the drawing to another page may not work.
This problem may occur if you rename the destination page and then update the hyperlink programmatically instead of using the user interface. In this case, the Name property and the NameU property of the page are no longer the same. This problem may occur more frequently on non-English systems where these properties are always different.
To work around this problem, update the hyperlink directly so that it points to the correct page. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Select the shape.
  2. On the Insert menu, click Hyperlinks.
  3. To the right of the Sub-address box, click Browse.
  4. In the Hyperlink dialog box, select the page that you want in the Page list box, and then click OK two times.
This problem is corrected in Microsoft Office Visio 2003 Service Pack 1 (SP1).

To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Visio 2003. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
