Spreadsheet links not updating

I have: -calculation set to Automatic -'File' - 'Options' - 'Trust Center' - 'Trust Center Settings' - 'External Content'- 'Security settings for Workbook Links' set to 'Enable automatic update for all workbook links (not recommended).

-In the ''File' - 'Options' - 'Advanced' tab, I have 'When calculating this workbook' - 'Update links to other workbooks' Is it possible to do this in Excel? If this method doesn't work is there some other way of sharing data dynamically between spreadsheets?

Would you like to answer one of these unanswered questions instead?

spreadsheet links not updating-80

I checked all the normal things, like cell type, auto calculation, etc...

What I found to be the problem was the formula and the fact that I surrounded numbers with quotes.

That probably turned the cell into a text format cell, even though technically the cell was still a number and listed as one under the formats.

I stripped the quotes and the cells calculated as normal. Because it has attracted low-quality or spam answers that had to be removed, posting an answer now requires 10 reputation on this site (the association bonus does not count).

Three attempts later and it was still adamant it wanted to be "Manual" and nothing else.

Copy the contents of the spreadsheet to a new one, and deleted the old one (it wasn't a particularly important spreadsheet, thankfully), and everything was fine. I have an Access 2003 database (using Access 2000 file format) that contains an unbound form.Within that form, I have linked to an Excel Spreadsheet. create a 'dummy' table with just one field, and set the form record source = this table.However, when I change cell A1 to 00, I need those changes to appear automatically the next time the form is opened. I've thought about trying to do all of this using the sendkeys command if I could hide everything from the user... Wouldn't it be just as easy and more sensible to create a linked table and view the data from the linked table via the form. Someone looking at that this year or two from now is bound to have a reaction like: "... If only they would listen ;) - Many thanks again to fredthered A parting comment - : Maybe that person in the accounting department is planning using Excel to create pivot tables based on the Excel spreadsheet in question. With monday.com’s project management tool, you can see what everyone on your team is working in a single glance. in this case, it is a lot easier to get Excel up and running by double-clicking on the linked OLE Object! I have everything set to automatically update, yet when I change information in the spreadsheet, open the database and open the form, it is not changed on the form. In form design view, open the fields dialog and drag the one field onto the form. I want to be able to open the form and view the spreadsheet.
