Excel 2016 automatically updating workbook
I've tried to find some general setting that is driving this but can't find anything that works across all files at once.I'm also getting the "We can't update some of the links in your workbook right now.So I closed out of my work so my boss could review.He told me the model did not update, so I checked it out.You need to follow below steps: In this way we can disable automatic update of links.Note: after taking all the above steps the links will be disable till the excel is open, after you close the excel file you need to repeat the above steps to ensure there is no automatic updation of links.So I have many Excel spreadsheets that contain numerous external links that I don't necessarily want to update every time I open the file.For example, somebody might update some data in another file that I'm not ready to pick up yet.
Anyway, I put together a pretty simple spreadsheet where a single cell will reference one other file, very simple.
Excel 2013 has a multi-threading feature that allows you to reduce the time it takes to calculate complex formulas.
If you would rather not turn off automatic calculation, you can try using this feature (if you have multiple processors in your computer) to reduce calculation time.
I tried going into Edit Links and changing the startup prompt to "Don't display the alert and don't update automatic links" This one seems to work but I shouldn't have to do this for every single file that I open.
I didn't turn it on in individual files so I don't think I'd have to turn it off individually in ~100 different files.
