In a PowerPoint 2007 presentation I have many external links. These are updated when the document is opened.

However, the source documents are now missing so I want to remove the external links, i.e. keep the existing information and not update.

How can I do this?

Press the Office button, then goto Prepare and selecting Edit Links to Files (you may need to scroll down the list to find it). This will bring up the dialog showing the external links, which you can then break.
