I am editing links within my Excel file. These links point to another Excel file on a network drive.

When I do so, often, Excel freezes for a period of time.

Why's that and what can I do to prevent this. Thanks

And where is your programming question? –  Doc Brown Jan 4 '13 at 15:03
This is more of a SU question. You open that Excel file so that Excel does not have to do it everytime it needs to update its values. Close it when you're done. –  Alexandre P. Levasseur Jan 4 '13 at 15:05
Thanks a lot for your help –  user1944008 Jan 4 '13 at 16:37
