Good-oh!  In that case, the reference in First.ods to bank.ods is doubly wrong.

What?!  Where did that come from?  I made no suggestion that your 
link worked: on the contrary, I explained why it didn't!

I say again: in the copy of First.ods you posted, the rogue link was 
to a file called bank.ods in the parent directory.  You provided no 
file called bank.ods; instead you provided a file called 
bank_short.ods which you now confirm is in the same directory.  Your 
link will not work until you correct it to address the actual file.
