Connected workbooks not updating
I'm getting to know Redux by having read the docs and am starting out just modifying the real-world example.In my case, I've swapped the Git Hub HTTP API calls for my own, and swapped the Repo and User concepts with analogous ones in my environment. Here's where I'm running into trouble: My API calls are succeeding, response JSON is getting camel Cased and normalized, key: That would mean the problem is in the middleware, right? The workbooks are linked to equivalent files in a folder on our Windows server, so when the matching file is deleted from that folder (which happens as part of our business flow), the link breaks. Ask To Update Links = True ) works the same way as Double False: NO WARNINGS are shown!Is it possible to suppress the warning when the link is broken? From the discussion with @Siddharth Rout we see now the cause is different settings for different Excel versions: most likely you use Excel 2010 or later (Siddharth Rout has 2010 as well), while I'm using 2007 and see no warnings at all if links are OK. Open Filename:="C:\Book1with Link To Book2.xlsx" Application. Except a good testing practice and very important solved case (I may face such issues everyday while sending my workbooks to 3rd party, and now I'm prepared), 2 more things learned: Thanks very much to everyone who contributed to the solution, and especially OP who raised the question.Put another way, a connection is nothing more than various pieces of information: the type of connection (such as Microsoft SQL Server, ODBC), the server name, the table name, optional parameters (such as Persist Security Info = True).Excel uses this information to fetch data such as a company's sales data or inventory data..Then, I changed only the following Excel options (i.e. Ask To Update Links = False Set get Workbook = Workbooks. Ask To Update Links = True End Function That code worked for me Sid (in xl2010) in that it disabled the message, but it did update the link in the background. Open(bk Path, False)` will suppress the warning, and not drive the update.
Excel can open files and establish connections based on their contents.
It is provided as is, for anyone who may still be using these technologies, with no warranties or claims of accuracy with regard to the most recent product version or service release.
Summary: Microsoft Office Excel 2007 greatly improves the ability to create and manage external connections to data sources.
The above shared file shows on opening (having the above listed Excel options) 2 warnings - in the order of appearance: WARNING #1 After click on 's) So far so good, we finally go to Now I'll try all possible options step by step to make the picture clear. We spent a good hour with Sid that morning trying to figure out the case.
I'll share only relevant lines of code for simplicity (complete sample file with code will be shared in the end). So, will the above code suppress all warnings for any Excel version and makes links updated silently? Sorry, I'm a bit lost in options, but hope I explained all correctly)@sigil: Without seeing your workbook, i won't be able to comment further.
