In excel, when I move/copy a sheet to a new workbook, the links that I have created in that sheet would automatically be referenced to the source workbook.

In open office, the links that I made would become #REF!

ex. workbook1 has 3 sheets named sheet1, sheet2, and sheet3. In sheet1 of workbook1 there is a link to sheet3 (Cells A1 of sheet1 has this formula: =sheet3.A1)
sheet3 A1 has a value of 23, so sheet1 A1 would return 23.
But when I copy sheet1 to new workbook, workbook2, the sheet1 A1 would return #REF!



Is there any solution to this problem?

try with =$sheet3.$A$1 instead of =sheet3.A1

It worked fine when copying within the same Workbook... But my real problem is how about moving/copying sheet into a new workbook... I hope there is a solution to this.

This looks like a bug to me. I have seen a few references to this type of behaviour in the issuezilla (goto www.openoffice.org to see this)
Even if you make the reference absolute like this " ='file:///C:/My Documents/temp10.sxc'#$Sheet3.B1" in the source document, moving the sheet to a new workbook does not work correctly.
