    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?

    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.
