This is Excel 2003.
I have this “File” that I have linked to and I need to save every 13 seconds to keep it live.  

But sometimes the original file is saving and my procedure errors out.   How do you tell it to   “ If  error then continue” without popping up the error, so I don’t have to manually do it.

Any help would greatly be appreciated.

On Error GoTo ErrorHandler
 
    ActiveWorkbook.UpdateLink Name:= _

        , Type:=xlExcelLinks
    Range("A1").Select
   
    Call UpdateTime
ErrorHandler:
    ' Do whatever want to do if error occures

Though using "On Error Resume Next" is not advicable during in need we can use them.

Sub UpdateLinks()'
On Error Resume Next
    ActiveWorkbook.UpdateLink Name:= _
        "\\DTCNAS-ILSP002\Test.xls" _
        , Type:=xlExcelLinks
    Range("A1").Select
   
    Call UpdateTime
End Sub


Sub UpdateTime()
On Error Resume Next
Application.OnTime Now + TimeValue("00:00:13"), "UpdateLinks"
End Sub
