disable "the workbook you opened contains automatic links to information in another workbook..."

how do i disable this dialog box:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The workbook you opened contains links to information in another workbook. Do you want to update this
workbook with changes made to the other workbook?

.To update all linked information, click Yes.
.to keep the existing information, click No.

                                                          Yes                      No

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

i need to this able this so that my program would just run automatically without stops it would only terminate when it is done printing the last file. I place 250 points even though it is only a not so difficult question.

Hi,

Are you opening the MS-Excel workbook via Visual Basic?

If so, please paste the code you are using and then we can best advise on what to change to avoid the prompt to re-link external files.

For example,

The second argument of the "Open" method of MS-Excel allows you to specify the default action to take:

expression.Open(FileName, UpdateLinks, ReadOnly, Format, Password, WriteResPassword, IgnoreReadOnlyRecommended, Origin, Delimiter, Editable, Notify, Converter, AddToMRU)

"UpdateLinks" (Optional Variant) specifies the way links in the file are updated.  If this argument is omitted, the user is prompted to specify how links will be updated.  Otherwise, this argument is one of the values listed in the following table.

Value/Meaning
0 Doesn't update any references
1 Updates external references but not remote references
2 Updates remote references but not external references
3 Updates both remote and external references


I suggest using a syntax such as:

Open(Filename:="filename.xls", UpdateLinks:=3)


BFN,

fp.

excel_app.Workbooks.Open attachloc

to read:
excel_app.Workbooks.Open attachloc, 3

Hi,

Sorry, I'm not sure about the unlimited question points, as I've never asked a question!

Try reviewing the membership details, or reviewing the FAQ assistance at:

Personally, I'm not contributing as much on E-E as I would like.

Other stuff just gets in the way! :)

Glad we got an answer to your problem.
