Prompt: This document contains one or more links - Can I supress this prompt?

I have a document that has many work object links in it. I get prompted each time I open the .doc

This document contains one or more links to other files. Do you want to update this document with the data from the linked files?

I would like this always be yes. I don't want to be prompted each time. How can I do this? I need a quick answer and that is why I am offering 500 for this question.

Thanks,

Tone

Hello tone28,

in word 2000 [and i assume higher] you can check the setting for updating the links automatically

1. goto tools
2. choose options
3. goto the tab General
4. check the box "update automatic links at Open"
5. click OK

close word and reopen the document to see if that helps

hope this helps a bit

Ok, I verified those settings and still I get prompted. Ideas?

Under Edit > Links

I have two links that are set for Automatic.

Thanks in advance.

does this kb articles apply maybe not the same version but the solution would be the same changing the office version number according to your configuration

Well, I could not resolve this so I wrote a script to do what I need it to do and set the documents to manual update.

Because I needed a fast answer and I was helped so quickly I am awarding the points to bruintje.

Thanks for your help.

thanks for the points,
sometimes i refrain from writing a script not knowing if the asker has any experience with it, next i'll just include it :-)
