Error Continue in Excel VBA

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.

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
