Disable Update Links Message

Nov 15, 2006

I have tried using the following in the ThisWorkbook Module which does not seem to work because it appears the "Update Links" message fires before the Open Event

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Application.AskToUpdateLinks = False
End Sub

I know it is possible to turn it off manually through Tools-Options but have 30 users and do not want them seeing the "Update Links" message if possible to turn it off.

Update Links And Click Update, Returns #VALUE!

Jun 21, 2007

I have a vlookup to another workbook. It works fine if both workbooks are open. But if both are not open and I open the workbook with the links and click Update, #VALUE! returns. I have attached the two files. I don't think it is my formula, but here it is anyway. =IF( COUNTIF([Tempozgrid.xls]June!$A$52:$A$83,A3),VLOOKUP(A3,[Tempozgrid.xls]June!$A$52:$L$82,12,FALSE),0)

Stop Update / Don't Update Requestor Message

Oct 27, 2008

I have some VB code which sequentially opens over 200 workbooks to extract data from each and populate another workbook. These workbooks do have links to other workbooks in them.
For some reason when some of these workbooks are opened I get a requestor window asking whether I want to Update or Don't Update the data. I always want to Update the workbook and believe this can be done in VB by hiding the requestor?

Update Links When There Are None?

Jan 27, 2009

i have a complex workbook. Recently, when I open it, it asks me if I want to update links. I never (that I know of) established any links to other workbooks. I see that a workbook is referenced in the "edit/links" menu, but I can find no way determine which cells, graphs, etc, in my workbook are subject to this link. I would like to get rid of this useless and bothersome issue.

Links Do Not Automatically Update

Sep 11, 2013

I have a dashboard (CW Dashboard.xlsx) that is linked to 3 main spreadsheets. In each main spreadsheet, there are 5 tabs. One tab contains raw data, the other 4 tabs contain tables: 2 tabs with formulas based on the raw data tab, and 2 tabs linked to 20 other spreadsheets (for now). I separated the raw data into 3 spreadsheets because Excel was calculating way slower than my patience would tolerate. All spreadsheets are Excel 2010. All spreadsheets reside on our network drive.

The links update as expected on the 2 tabs that are linked to the 20 different spreadsheets in each of the three main spreadsheets.The CW Dashboard does not update. I get #REF! in each cell (although when I click in the cell, the link shows no error). I am using VLOOKUP and HLOOKUP in this spreadsheet. I can of course open the source documents from within the Dashboard and the links then work as expected. However, I would prefer the eventual users of the Dashboard not have to open 4 s'sheets.

Update Links To All Spreadsheets

Jan 13, 2010

I'm hoping to find a way to update links on all spreadsheets going backwards.

ie. s/sh 5 is linked to s/sh 4
s/sh 4 is linked to s/sh 3
s/sh 3 is linked to s/sh 2
s/sh 2 is linked to s/sh 1

Is there a way of opening s/sh 5, and having it automatically update s/sh's 2,3 and 4 (1 has no links), rather than just updating s/sh 4, as would be the normal functionality. Currently I need to open 2, then 3, then 4, otherwise changes to s/sh 1 do not flow all the way through to s/sh 5.

Update Links Object

Jun 27, 2006

I have a macro that creates links to another workbook and then changes the setting for the links update to "xlUpdateLinksNever". I wrote this macro in Excel 2003. I am now testing across different excel platforms and this errors out when I try to use it in excel 2000. I'm assuming this is because excel 2000 does not have the same ability to ontrol the links.

Update Formula Links

Nov 3, 2006

I have a sheet with formula in various cells that are referenced to a sheet that doesnt initially exist. For example one formula on the sheet is: =If( 'WF Tracker 2008'!$D$5=AN$4,INDEX('WF Tracker 2008'!$B$6:$P$10, MATCH($E36,'WF Tracker 2008'!$B$6:$B$10,), MATCH(AN$7,'WF Tracker 2008'!$B$6:$P$6,)),IF(AN26="N/A",AN31,"N/A"))
and initially, sheet 'WF Tracker 2008' doesnt exist so the formulas all produce #ref! values which I expect. My problem is that I Run a macro that creates the sheet 'WF Tracker 2008' but the formula dont want to refresh/update unless I individually go into each cells formula in the formula bar and hit return.

Update Links Across Workbooks

Jun 6, 2007

I have a Vlookup in a shared workbook looking in another shared workbook for the data I want. I open the file and click "Update Links" but I then get the following message box:

"This workbook contains one or more links that cannot be updated.
-To change the source of links, or attempt to update values again, click Edit Links.
-To open the workbook as is, click Continue.

I know this message is trying to tell me it can't find my links, but the path/workbook/ sheet are correct and the numbers are getting updated. I'm worried the message will deter the other users of this workbook from allowing the use of the vlookup.

Update Links Without Prompt

Mar 18, 2008

I'm using code which forces users to enable macros prior to being allowed into a file. Then I ran into an issue of needing this Shared Workbook to update links, which you can't do in the workbook_open event and I do not want users prompted to update or not. So what I've done is made a 'skeleton' file to force the macro enable and then open up the real file with updated links. Once the real file is opened I want that skeleton file to close. For some reason, once the file closes the code halts. "Forcemacroenablemaster" closes, but nothing runs after it. If I comment the close line out everything after runs. This code is in my "Forcemacroenable" file:

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Call ShowAllSheets
Workbooks("Forcemacroenablemaster.xls").Close False
MsgBox "Test"

Call ValidSetup
End Sub

Links To Data Tables Do Not Update?

Aug 30, 2013

I'm having a problem with data tables. Actually, not with data tables, but links to data tables. Calculation is set to be automatic and values within data tables update alright, but links to those values do no update. So you may have a certain value in one cell within a data table, for example cell B5, and a different value in another cell which is just a link to cell B5.

Don't Update Links On Workbook Open

Aug 12, 2009

I have a workbook that has many cells that link to a server on the other side of the planet. If I manually open this workbook I get the "This workbook contains links to other data sources." And the option to "Update" or "Don't Update"

If I choose to not update, everything works great. If I choose to update, the worksheet takes 10-15 minutes to open. I have tried to go to tools-->options-->Edit and uncheck "ask to update automatic links" but this makes the default behavior updating. I want to open this workbook using a scheduled task and a batch file, and have it not update, and then run a macro. Any suggestions on how to do this?

Office 2007 - Where Has The 'do You Want To Update Links' Box Gone

Jan 14, 2008

I'm opening an Excel file that automatically attempts to update links when I open it, but I am not prompted with the choice to cancel, or update links, when I open the file, like I was in Office 2003.

I have checked the Excel Options, Advanced, General, 'Ask to update automatic links' box, but I still don't get the dialog box when I open the file.

The file is just riddled with VALUE errors. A colleague of mine who opens the file in Office 2003 can see all the data fine.

Slow Update Of Edited Links

Sep 26, 2008

My business has a significant number of Excel sheets interlinked. One of them has about 10.000 links to about 60 files. Those 60 files are within a sub-folder and once a quarter the business needs to replace all 60 files with a new set. To establish this, they replace the sub-folder name in the link with the new name. To do this on 10.000 links takes about 72 minutes because Excel seems to open up a file for every updated cell. We tried to stop this by changing Excel to calculate manual, disabled "Update remote reference", but this didn't improve anything.

We have similiar issue when opening/updating the master file - it takes around 3 mins.

Besides that a proper database is certainly better for this requirement, is there anything we can do to improve the performance of the replace method. I was thnking about stopping Excel from validating/updating each single cell and after everything has been replaced to do it in one go without Excel opening and closing 10.000 times a file.

Update Of Links In Formula For All Cells

Oct 20, 2006

I have cells (range named Formulas) in a worksheet A (wsA) linking to another workbook. This workbook has several sheets, each a different forecast. From a Radio Button Group on wsA I would like to choose forecast, FC1-FC3, and then all the cells in the range Formulas would be updated with the choosen FC.

I would like a VBA script to handle this:When the workbook is activated the present Forecast in the Radio Button Group should be stored as a variable (oldFC)When I choose a new forecast, the value should be stored in a new variable (newFC)I then want to loop through the whole range (Formulas) and update each cell and it's part of string value to the newFC

Before update:
wsA cell N3='H:[5500-plan-06.xls]FC 3'!N$16
wsA cell N4='H:[5500-plan-06.xls]FC 3'!N$17

When new Forecast is choosen this should be update to:
wsA cell N3='H:[5500-plan-06.xls]FC 1'!N$16
wsA cell N4='H:[5500-plan-06.xls]FC 1'!N$17

Update Links Only Via Macro Code

Mar 20, 2008

I have a 15 excel files which are part of the forecast system. There is another file MASTER which is the host file for the macro. Every months multiple users are asked to update their forecast in the 15 excel files .As these files also display actuals, so they are linked to bunch of other files. The links to the files should not be updated unless I run my macro from MASTER to do the series of tasks.

Everytime these users open the files , they are asked to update links.

Is there a way for me to stop this warning and still able to update the links only when i run my macro from the Master.

How To Update Master Workbook With Links To Other Workbooks

Dec 10, 2009

I have a workbook that links out to numerous other workbooks for current data. After one of the supporting workbooks gets up dated, I return to the master workbook.

Here, I need to see the updated results. The only way that I can find a way of updating the master is to close and save it and then re-open.

Is there a way of updating the master workbook using a macro?

Auto Update Links From Excel To Powerpoint

Oct 25, 2012

I have excel graphs linked to a power point presentation that runs in a loop and I would like have to the links update everytime slide 1 pops up or when the loop restarts, either one works for me. When I close the looping presentation and reopen it I get a message asking me if I want to update the charts, but I would really prefer the looping presentation to update itself. I know this is going to be a VBA setup, but I cant seem to figure it out. I pasted the links by: pasting special, paste link as microsoft office excel worksheet object.

Macro To Update Links In Active Sheet Only

Jun 15, 2009

I have a workbook which has links to another excel workbook (source). This workbook has many sheets -all exact copy- with different names. I changed startup prompt (edit->links) to "dont display the alert and dont update automatic links". Then I recorded a macro for updating links (from source) and assigned this macro to a button. What I want to do is when I click this update button I want links to be updated only on the active sheet that Im on. My problem is, when I press this button, it updates all links including other sheets (basically whole workbook).

My current macro is (I dont know coding but I tried changing ActiveWorkbook to ActiveSheet but it didnt work):

Sub update()
ActiveWorkbook.UpdateLink Name:= _
"C:Documents and SettingsAlperDesktopExcelsource.xls", Type _
End Sub
