Can we clarify this statement RE 2007, as I am having trouble with the prompt
to update links (when opening a file).

Have 2007 settings as; no automatic update, ask to update automatic links
and have tried various combinations of let the user choose, however, not
being prompted. This is an issue as macro link error messages are being
returned when files are converted from 2003 to 2007.

Example, still using unchanges 2003 code "UpdateLinks:=3, ReadOnly:=False,

This could also be a problem with network security of the excel 2007
installation, if so what do I tell IT as far as a location to allow?

Thank you,
