Default Hyperlink selection generates error message

I have an Excel spreadsheet with multiple tabs and hundreds of hyperlinks on
each tab. Randomly, when a user selects one of these links, an error is
generated; "Microsoft Excel is waiting for another application to complete an
OLE action."

I guess whatever application is required to open the document to which
the hyperlink points is held up while trying to open it. It might, for
example, be displaying a dialogbox which needs a response?

Which application is involved?
Does it always happen on the first invocation of that application
during a session?
Any other clues about when it happens?

Hi,

Try this it might work: Choose Tools, Options, General tab, check Ignore
other applications.
