In both Microsoft Project and Excel, when you open the file that contains links, by default you will see a dialog box prompting you to update the file using the link (see Figure 17-15).

In Excel, if you do not want to see this alert each time you open the workbook, click Tools, Options and then click the Edit tab. Clear the Ask To Update Automatic Links check box.
