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".

Try the following code:
Sub Document_Open()
Application.DisplayAlerts = False
    With Options
        .UpdateLinksAtOpen = True
    End With
Selection.WholeStory
Selection.Fields.Update
Selection.HomeKey
End Sub

I am implementing this through an API call in Delphi and based on the posted comment I was able to code the solution.  My code looks like the following

    WordDocumentResearch.Open;
    WordApplicationResearch.WordApplication.DisplayAlerts := 0;
    WordApplicationResearch.WordApplication.Options.UpdateLinksAtOpen := True;

Thank You
