I am using Access to open an Excel workbook that has links in it. Is there something I can add to the "objExcel.Workbooks.Open modGlobal.g_strTemplate" code so that the Excel does not launch the "This workbook contains links" message?

Thanks.

Glad to help.  BTW, if you need to update the links, set it to true.
