    Hi

    Running OOo 1.1.0 on win98 I don't seem to be able to "break" the OLE links
    between writer and calc.
    Neither can I change them to "manual" update and there is no change if I
    change the setting in Writer to "Never update links"

    Saving the writer file after I make those changes just doesn't work - it
    "remembers" the first settings ever used which is a bit of a pain cause 2
    of the OLE objects (calc sheets) also require me to modify the link every
    time I open the writer file. The file that the OLE is linked from takes
    about a min to open and then when it does the links don't update
    automatically anyway.

    Does anybody know of any work around to this ?

    TIA

    Don't forget to ask on the Open Office mailing list as well.
