How can I update a link manually?

Manually update links when you open a document.


  1. Open in Edit mode the document that contains the linked object.
  2. Click Edit > External Links.
  3. Select the link in the External links dialog box.
  4. Click Update Now. To update all linked objects in the document, click View > Refresh.
    Note: It's useful to select Manual as the update type for objects that take a lot of time to update, like large bitmaps. This way, you choose when you want to take the time to update a link. Also, be aware that upon first opening a document with an OLE link, you will be asked if you want to update the link.
