I have a revit MEP file linking a Revit ARCH plan but the all of a sudden the link file wont stay linked.  I have gone into the Revit Arch file and everything seems good.  Now when I go into my Revit MEP file there isn't a background.  I hqave tried to reload from file as well as unload and reload, but still nothing.

 Any ideas?

is it on the same machine or is it over a network? If its a network based link it needs to be in a shared location

Not too sure what you mean in a shared location.  It is on a network but everyone has access to the drive.  We have been working on the local copy for a couple of days now but all of a sudden one of the designers told me that the background disappeared and they didn't know why.

I was just making the point that the linked file must be saved on the network drive. The girls in my office always link files from their desktops into projects and when I open the project my desktop does not recognoixe the link path.
