Hyperlinking between tabs in a spreadsheet get message: The document has been modified. Do you want to save changes? How to prevent this?
Posted on 2004-04-26
I have a spreadsheet with several tabs in use and hyperlinks that take you from the main tab to other tabs. It works perfect when running in my PC. When I upload the spreadsheet to a web server and invoke it from an html page, it opens as planned but clicking on a hyperlink to move to another tab in the same spreadsheet produces the following message:
The document has been modified. Do you want to save changes?
Yes: Save your changes
No: Discards your changes
Cancel: Keeps this document open.
followed by buttons for Yes, No, and Cancel
How do I prevent this message from coming up? I've thought about converting the entire workbook to an html document but not sure it will continue to work and not sure how to go about this. Since the workbook undergoes frequent changes, I'd rather keep it in Excel and FTP the changed version to the website.
