I would like to automate a "NO" reply to the Excel prompt to update links when a file opens via a VB command. What's the code for this, please?

Thank you!

Maybe this
Code:
Private Sub Workbook_Open()
ThisWorkbook.UpdateLinks = xlUpdateLinksNever
End Sub

Here are three ways, first to update, second to not update, third to use the user settings.

Rich (BB code):
Sub OpenUpdate()

    Workbooks.Open FileName:= _

        "C:\My Documents\LinkedBook.xls", UpdateLinks:=xlUpdateLinksAlways

End Sub



Sub OpenDontUpdate()

    Workbooks.Open FileName:= _

        "C:\My Documents\LinkedBook.xls", UpdateLinks:=xlUpdateLinksNever

End Sub



Sub OpenUpdateLinksPerSettings()

    Workbooks.Open FileName:= _

        "C:\My Documents\LinkedBook.xls", UpdateLinks:=xlUpdateLinksUserSetting

End Sub
