MS Word do not ask to update linked Excel spreadsheet every time I open

I have a linked Excel spreadsheet object in my MS Word document and every time I open the doc, it asks me if I want to update the linked object. I open this file several times per day, and I just want to update the link manually as needed. Is there any way to stop it from asking?

Dialog box displayed by MS Word when opening doc with linked object.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
