How do I save one linked sheet from an Excel document as a seperate document without it updating every time the main document is updated. Esentially, I want the seperate document to "freeze" when I save it seperately. Here is what I did - Edit - Move or Copy - Create a Copy in New Book. This workes fine - but it updates & I don't want it to. I know that when I open it, it will ask to update or not - but I am not always the person opening it - so I want that removed as an option.

Why do you want to "Link" the new sheet if you do not want it to update?
Why not just copy the sheet?

I am just creating a copy - but when I open it, it asks if I want to update it - I don't.

Does it ask if you want to update "Links" or update the sheet?
On the new Workbook have you looked at Edit>Links and if links is not "greyed out" then it has copied the workbook with links, delete the links.
