Default Document hyperlink doesn't work when offline

On a laptop, I have a template with a hyperlink to a jpg that is an
offline file. The hyperlink contains the path

\\Servername\PRACTICE DOCUMENTS\Reference\UE dermatomes.jpg

The hyperlink only works if the laptop is logged onto the server
containing the original file. I can also access the jpg file directly
on the laptop via:

PRACTICE DOCUMENTS\Reference\UE dermatomes.jpg since this is also a

I tried to change the hyperlink to Z:\PRACTICE DOCUMENTS\Reference\UE
dermatomes.jpg, but this change does not save. It reverts back to \
\Servername\PRACTICE DOCUMENTS\Reference\UE dermatomes.jpg

Can I get the Word hyperlink to point to the laptop offline copy of
the file only?
