Hi,

I am having a problem with macros running in an excel file when I open it in the background to update linked data in my word tables.  I am aware that you can turn macros off in Excel by using the Application.EnableEvents = False command but do not know how to fit this in with my current Open Excel File command.  Any Ideas?

Below is the line that I am currently using in the opening of the excel file

Set mobjXLWorkBook = mobjXLApp.Workbooks.Open(FileName:=strPath, UpdateLinks:=False, ReadOnly:=blnReadOnly)

It's a shame that that method isn't availble to the Word Application as well.

However, it would seem logical to try:

mobjXLApp..EnableEvents = False
Set mobjXLWorkBook = mobjXLApp.Workbooks.Open(FileName:=strPath, UpdateLinks:=False, ReadOnly:=blnReadOnly)

I agree that Word would benifit from such a method.

Did the job fine

Thanks

Thanks. I've just noticed my error (two dots instead of one). Sorry about that.
