I have an excel file that I use to update daily schedules.

The code is fairly simple yet has intermittent faults due to an unknown reason.

The code below opens a file( on teams), updates links and then closes the file, the fault is, sometimes the file will open and close but not update the links contained in the file.

The file is shared with other users so they can modify the file through the teams application.

The main file is stored on a network and the file it opens is stored on teams/ sharepoint.

VBA Code:
Workbooks.Open ("https://bakerhughes.sharepoint.com/sites/OFSBridgeOfDonProductionSchedule-GOODWAY1/Shared%20Documents/GOODWAY1/CHUCKER.xlsx?web=1"), UpdateLinks = 1
     Worksheets("Sheet1").Unprotect
     Range("J1").Value = Format(Now, "dd/mm/yyyy HH:mm")
     Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("K3:K16").Clear
     Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("3:16").EntireRow.Hidden = False
     Range("K:K").Locked = False
     Worksheets("Sheet1").Protect
     ActiveWorkbook.AutoSaveOn = True
     ActiveWorkbook.Close savechanges = True

All help is fully appreciated!
