Getting rid of message boxes

My program opens up an Excel spreadsheet to read in data.  However, the spreadsheet that it opens contains links to other data sources.  So when it opens it, it always gives a box that asks if I want to update the linked information and I must select yes or no.  Is there a way to have my program always select No, so it doesn't hang up on this prompt?  Thanks!

Also try


where XlApp is Excel.Application

XlApp.Interactive = False
XlApp.Application.DisplayAlerts = False
XlApp.Workbooks.Open FileName:=yourfilename, UpdateLinks:=0
0

Found it out myself!  For future reference to anybody, the second field in xlApp.Workbooks.Open(sPath, False, True) can be used to turn off updating links!
