Issue in using .doc type OLE object



Iam using Crystal reports ver to create the report and view it via application written in VS2010. In this report, i have inserted a word (.doc) OLE object via the menu->insert->OLE object. I have used embeded type. Now, when i change the word document that i had embeded into the report and refresh the report, the report does not reflect the change for the OLE object.

i tried making the OLE object linked by checking the link check box while inserting the OLE object. By doing so, i will be able to see the changes when the report is refreshed but when i copy this report to another computer , The OLE object in the report is pointing to the original machine's word document.

What i need:

A report that has the OLE word object which when changed should reflect in the report. The report when placed in another computer, should take the word document from the location in that computer.

Please let me know how to solve this problem.

Thanks in advance
