Word: relative hyperlinks.

I am writing documentation using Word 2007 (12.0.6514.5001) SP1 MSO (12.0.6529.5000) and saving as mht files.  I want to hyperlink to local files in the same directory and leave the links as just the local file names, not having the full path to the file.  I want to do this to make the documentation portable.  I cannot figure out how to do it.  I searched & found reference to the hyperlink base but cannot figure out how to change it in my version of word.  I did change the "web options\file names & locations\ use long file names... & update links on save" settings to no avail.  Any help is appreciated.
