Default Executing an older excel 4.0 macro

Record a new Macro

From the menu Choose Edit/Links Check Automatic and then Update now.

Open the recorded macro and look at your code.

If you are automating this (such as trying to reinitialize a dead link
without anyone sitting at the computer) you will need to send an enter
key SendKeys "{enter}" before the update in case the Update is not
successful. Otherwise excel will prompt you with a yes no question
asking if you want to start the application - and this stops execution
of the vba code.

I am trying to convert an older excel 4 macro into VBA.
The line of is ExecuteExcel4Macro "SET.UPDATES.STATUS
like the ExecuteExcel4Macro.

This line of code is suppose to set the links in Excel to
NOAMGR (another DDE program) from manual to automatic.

I tried to record a macro in Excel 97 and I still get the
same line of code?

Any Ideas?
