I have the following macro to update link, but when running this macro it opens up the folder and I need to then select the workbook

I would like to incorporate the workbook within the code so I do not have to search for the workbook and click on it in order for the links to be updated

The workbook is in C:\my documents and called "Sales Report Ver 1.1.xlsm"


Code:
 Sub UpdateLinks()

        ActiveWorkbook.UpdateLink Name:=ActiveWorkbook.LinkSources, Type:=xlExcelLinks

 End Sub

Your assistance is most appreciated

Convert text numbers to real numbers
Select a column containing text numbers. Press Alt+D E F to quickly convert text to numbers. Faster than "Convert to Number"
