Modification of source file path of DDE links is not stored

Postby heinrich_d » Tue Dec 17, 2019 12:05 am

I use DDE links in a calc file (destintion file).
I moved the source file (a calc file) to a new directory.
I open the destination file without updating the links.
I use Edit --> links. The window shows the Status "Not available" for the DDE links.
I use the Modify button and change the path of the source file (File:) of a DDE link.
The Status changes to "Automatic" (the Update of the link is defined as automatic), i.e. the change seems to be done.
Now I close Edit links and store the file.
When I reopen the file the changes are lost.
It seems that the changes are not stored.

You have to change the path in the formulas.
