If you do not want a linked OLE object to update when the source file is updated, you can set it to update manually. Once an object is set for manual updating, it will not update automatically unless you set it to do so.
To update linked files manually
1 Click Edit, Links.
2 Select the OLE objects from the Links list box that you want to manually update.
If you only want to update one object, select it before clicking Edit, Links and it will automatically be highlighted.
3 Enable the Manual button if the selected objects are set to update automatically.
4 Click the Update Now button.
5 Click the Close button.
To update linked files automatically
• Follow steps 1 and 2 from the previous procedure, and click the Automatic button.
