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.

Hide "You are about to" message box
How do you bypass all of the "You are about to" messages that pop up when you run an append or delete query so it just runs without you having to hit the yes button in the message?

Linking Time-varying charts
Hi all, Here's my problem. I've got a set of Excel files with monthly data which is updated every month. So in January I only have Jan data. In February I have Jan and Feb data, and so on. The chart I have for this data always displays a full 18 months data from October 2003 to March 2005, and as more data is added, the line on the chart snakes its way from left to right. These files are submitted to me from various sources. As a central data collector, I now want to link these Excel files into a single Excel file which will display all the charts in one place for convenience. Ho...

Money Plus Annual Update?
There was an article over the weekend in the Cleveland, OH newspaper that reviewed the financial software offerings and said that there would be no further annual updated from Microsoft Money, thus Money + is that last version. Is this correct? Has Microsoft abandoned us? We noticed that our version of Money+ was purchased in August, 2007 but apparently nothing since. There will not be a "formal" annual version but around the time of update timeouts I expect to see what I will call from want of a better description, Service Packs. So if there is any added functionality then...

How do I link multiple excel documents?
I need to link three Excel Documents into a master document that will reflect the data inputted into the others. as of right now they are all one document but that allows only one person at a time to enter the data, we need to have multiple people entering the data.

Parent/Child window message processing
I have a problem with VC++ window message routing(not command message routing) I have a ControlBar(pParent) window and inside this window, I create a child window(pChild devied from cview). This pChild window is constrained to pParent's client rect. The problem is that all the mouse messages are sent to the parent window instead of the child window. I've traced it to AfxWndProc(), if I click on the child window, a mouse message targeting the parent window is generated(the target window handle is the parent window). Maybe this is related to windows not mfc. The child could re...

Why show Enable/Disable macro prompt after I deleted all macros?

linked cell contents not autofitting row height
Why doesn't Excel 2002 autofit row height for text input from a linked cell? When the linked cell contents exceed the currently viewable contents of the recipient cell the row height is not adjusted. Is there a way to make the autofit work in these circumstances? Formulas don't change format and rowheight is a format. You could use a worksheet event that resets the rowheights whenever that worksheet recalculates. If you want to try this, rightclick on the worksheet tab, select view code and paste this into the code window. Option Explicit Private Sub Worksheet_Calculate() ...

chart not updating
I have a pivot table with a drop down that lists division. Data presented is dependent upon which division I select. Next I have cells referenced to the same cells in my pivot table. My reason is that a pivot chart is not as flexible as a chart based on a normal table. Anyway, my chart is made with those cells as the source. The cells update based upon what division I selected in my pivot table drop down. (Same data in both places: independent table and pivot table). However, my chart is not updating as it should. It retains the first division's information. It worked ini...
