FWIW, I just tried it in LO under Debian Linux 10 and it worked as you said, without an 
error message, and with the very misleading appearance of the absolute path in LO (but with the 
relative path appearing in content.xml).

Hi Dave,

I have now used an English UI, and now the correct fields. Open Hyperlink-dialog, click Document. Click 
"Open File" button at the ride side of the Document Path field.

I have tried with system open file dialog and with LO's own dialog. It works in both cases. 
Ctrl-click opens e.g. a linked .odt file in LibreOffice.

I work on Windows 10. What OS do you use? Perhaps there is an error in Linux?

I just tried in UbuntuStudio 20.04.1 with LO and the procedure works fine as Regina said.

But as Robert says, too, the path is indicated in the absolute form in the Document Path field. 
Right clicking on the link and selecting Edit Hyperlink also shows an absolute path. But inspection 
of content.xml confirms that the path is relative.

If the file with the hyperlink is moved to a different directory, the link updates showing again an 
absolute path as though the linked file has also been moved. But, of course, the link no longer 
works because it was relative and all the files concerned are no longer in the same directory.

I rechecked on a Windows10 box (up to date) with LO and the behaviour is exactly the same, 
showing an absolute path when really it is relative.

Indicating an absolute path in the linking dialogue is misleading.
