Refresh links in excel stay open  long enough to complete then save

I have a vb script that runs on a schedule.
It is supposed to open an excel file and refresh the links then save the file.
The problem it is that the  links take a few seconds to refresh and the file closes before it is done refreshing so i end up with a bunch of #NA where the data should be

Dim xlApp, vFile
 vFile = "C:\your file.xls"
 Set xlApp = CreateObject("excel.application")
 With xlApp.Workbooks.Open(vFile, True)
  .Close True
 End With
 Set xlApp = Nothing
