Using  Selection.InlineShapes.AddOLEObject ClassType:="Excel.Sheet.8", FileName:= _
        "C:\Documents and Settings\Anne Troy\Desktop\MyVlookup.xls", LinkToFile:= _
        True, DisplayAsIcon:=False
on a spreadsheet containing macros causes Excel to present 3 successive dialog boxes warning about macros. Is there a way to bypass these dialogs?

That does not do it. It is Excel, as I said, that displays the warning, not Word, and I'm automating Word.
