Update Links Code

Posted by Paul Magruder on April 17, 2001 6:46 AM

I would like to remove the "Update Links?" message when I open a certian workbook. I do not want to update the links. I am not sure how to write the code.
I would think it would be in a private sub under workbook open? ActiveWorkbook.Select , UpdateLinks:=0
dosen't work......

Thanks in advance

you could try:

Application.AskToUpdateLinks = False

you may want to set back to true when closing the file.

Hi Paul

You wont be able to do this from within the Workbook itself as the Links message appears before any Events fire.

You would need to open the Workbook from within another workbook like:

Workbooks.Open "C:\MyDocuments\Book1.xls", UpdateLinks:=0
