Can you allow updating of external links..

Excel Facts

Links? Where??
If Excel says you have links but you can't find them, go to Formulas, Name Manager. Look for old links to dead workbooks & delete.

Have you actually tried it? Or am I misunderstanding something here?

No I haven't. I was wondering if any of you guys here know a way to do it.

Thanks

I am referring to the EDIT->LINKS when a worksheet is linked another workbook.

When a sheet is protected, and I click on EDIT->LINK, the UPDATE VALUE, CHANGE SOURCE optionsa re not highlighted.

Is this not the case with you?

I was referring to the "Do you want to update links" prompt ( which is the same as UPDATE from the Edit/Links menu options, which works fine when you say "Yes". That's on a protected sheet.

No, I do not have the options for Update Links, or Change Source available with the sheet protected, but you didn't mention that before.

Ok, sorry for the misunderstanding. I think I have not used the precise words.
