Go to File (or Office button in 2007).

then Excel Options.  Then on left side, select Trust Center.  Then click Trust Center Settings button.  Pick External Content from the left side, then select either Enable Automatic updates for all Workbook Links (which is not recommended)... or select Prompt User on automatic update for Workbook links.

You will need to click Edit Links and re-direct the links to where the source files are.  It appears that perhaps the source file was deleted or moved.

I should have explained, the File we our opening is the same file, and I do not get that message but she does and that Security Warning message shows on mine but not hers.   We our connected to the same Source Network Drive.   So I thought it would have to be some Excel Setting.

Did you compare the settings in the Trust Center Settings section?  Are they the same in yours and your colleague's?

Try looking at the Names Manager (Formulas Tab) to see if there are Named Ranges that are not correct, referencing workbooks that don't exist or plain shouldn't exist.
