Disable Update Links Message?

I've created a presentation to be a 'real-time' scoreboard for an upcoming 
community event. Two of the presentations have 4 slides, the third has 5 
slides. All are on a continuous loop. One laptop is running the Presentation, 
and the other is for the scorekeeper to track results of the events. I've 
installed an add-in that does the updating each time the presentation loops. 
Everything works well, except that each time the links update, I get an 
obnoxiously intrusive popup asking me if I want to update the links. I'd 
*really* like to get rid of the messages. It would be a HUGE hassle to keep a 
person there all day to hit the enter key everytime the slide show loops. 
I've programmed the Excel sheets with

     ActiveWorkbook.UpdateLinks = xlUpdateLinksAlways

to try to get rid of this. The workbooks are all shared to prevent messages 
about being locked (and asking if I want to open them as Read-Only - which 
doesn't seem to update the links). In Excel, I can include a line of VBA code 

     Application.DisplayAlerts = False

to cut out alert messages, but, it doesn't seem like these are the same kind 
of alert messages as I've tried adding similar lines of code to the 

     ActivePresentation.UpdateLinks = True
     Application.DisplayAlerts = ppAlertsNone

but the messages keep popping up in front of the slide being displayed. This 
also hangs the presentation until I respond to the propmpt. Any help would be 
greatly appreciated, as there seems to be tremendously less info about 
PowerPoint VBA than just about any other kind.

1099-MISC updates
Until this year, you have always provided the prior year 1099-MISC form updates as a seperate Hot Fix or seperate Download.

How do I get a filter to "UPDATE" the rows selected?
Hey there! I am using Excel 2002 and I have a speadsheet that has prices in it. If I have the filter set to (the filter criteria is much more complex than this though) prices for items that cost >$5.00. Of I change an item to 4.59, it should not be seen. How can I get it to re-update the rows shown, with out releaseing the filter and resetting it? Is there something like refresh.filter or anything like that? Thanks Phil AFAIK you must release and reset but a macro with a worksheet_change event could trigger this for you so that it would happen automatically. -- Don Guillett SalesAid...

changes to message size limits
On Exchange 2003, one huge annoying feature is that even when I make configuration changes, it seems to take so long for them to actually go into effect. This time it's the message size limits. I tried changing them for an individual user in AD, even told the RUS to resync. An hour later that still hadn't taken effect, so we moved on and changed the global default in Exchange's Message Delivery properties. Another hour later and still no dice. We had a company-wide default of 15 MB (huge, I thought). I increased my account to 30 MB in AD, and then on the Message Delivery pro...

Folder-Link Icon in Outlook 2003

Charts not recognizing source data if original linked data is changed.

M2006 patch disables Pocket Money?
I used TaxCut again this season to complete the taxes... in order to import tax-related data from M2006 Deluxe I was forced to "patch" Money.

ActiveSync reports that it is unable to sync this data, and the "Information Type" row within the ActiveSync screen still lists "Microsoft Money Data", but the icon is missing-- it is as if the component is not recognized.

Even though a floating toolbar is created well, all its toolbuttons remain disabled
Hi I am working on a MFC MDI application. Environment is VS2005. I have derived a class from CToolBar and able to create and load it successfully. The toolbar is NOT created in CMainFrame::OnCreate(). Instead it is created on a tab-switch event. The tab-switch event handling is computationally higher and it takes around 2~3 seconds to complete. The toolbar is visible and enabled properly for sometime. However, at the end of the processing all the tool buttons are disabled. (The toolbar it self is ok and I can drag it). I checked to code and there is nothing in the code which explicitly dis...

Publisher 2003 file not updated on save

Yesterday, she worked on a file most of the day and swears she did a Save very often. About 4pm, she saved, printed her work, exited from Publisher, logged off Windows, and went home. Today when she came in she opened the file, only to find that it was missing much of her work. I checked and in fact the latest version on the server is from about 1pm.

document title will not update
My question is in regard to the title of the document in the title bar. Normally, the current file name is found in the title bar; however, in the database I am using, the title bar shows the name of the document from the original version. I saved this database with a different filename (to reflect current year). So, the "Match Program 2005-2006" in the title should actually be "2007-2008". I have updated the title of the document in the document properties. The filename reflects the current year, but 2005-2006 is still showing in the title bar area. Any sugg...
