Excel - Get paths to linked files (LinkSources)

  • 1.  Excel - Get paths to linked files (LinkSources)

    Posted 8 days ago

    I have a file that is linked to some other files. I need to open all of the linked files, because sometimes they're not updated. How can I do that?

    If I could get a collection with the paths to all the linked files, then I can open them and update them with others objects that I already have. In VBA it's something like:

    collection = ThisWorkbook.LinkSources(xlExcelLinks)

    Edit: I can open the linked table list using Alt+E+K, but I don't think that's useful if any code stage can be programmed

    You can use below VBA code as requested. I have created and tested

    Prerequisite - Excel workbook should have some excel linked.

    Sub DisplayLinkStatus()

    Dim NewColl As New Collection

    LinkSources = ThisWorkbook.LinkSources(xlExcelLinks)
          If IsArray(LinkSources) Then
              For Each link In LinkSources
                    'NewColl.Add link
                   Debug.Print link
          End If
    End Sub
