updating of links to other excel file only works when I do 'Update Values' in Data --> Edit links
Solved by S. J. in 26 mins
after changing pc, excel started automatically update links to other files in excel with cloud path, instead of local. And then update of value does not happen immediately.

Need to have links between Excel files update automatically, not require me to click update (so that a multi-workbook macro can run without stopping).

I need help updating external links to files stored on a cloud server (e.g. Dropbox). My destination file has update links automatically enabled. When opening the destination file and answering affirmatively to update links, cell information is not updated. Updating link information in Data | Edit links does not work either. However, if the source file is opened, links information in the destination file is automatically updated.

Hi, i have created links in my excel spreadsheet, and for some reason they don't update when opened by another person eg it still says=('C:\Users\singhrav\Dropbox, when it should change. This also means other people are not able to update these links, even though the source files are on a shared drive. HELP PLEASE!
