I have a Word 2003 document with about 25 linked Excel spread sheets. When I open the Word document I get the "This document contains links..." prompt asking me if I want to update the links. I would like to suppress this message and just have the links always update every time I open the Word document. Please note ... I have the links set to "Automatic" already and have the Tools|Options|General setting set to on for "Update Automatic Links on Open".
