I have a Word document with links to objects in an Excel workbook. I have set all the links in Word to manual update and I set the option in Word where I unchecked the box for update automatic links when documents open. However, when I open the Word document it then performs an update of all links.

I know this is not a specific Excel questions, but hoping some one here might point me in the right direction to determine why this occurring.

Thanks,

Steve

That will happen if the Excel workbook is open, regardless of the settings in Word.
