Hi, This happens locally and in Azure, on my machine, and 5 other peoples machines. I can record anything else with out problem. Change link macros I recorded in excel 2010 still work, and can be manually edited and run, I just can't record a new macro to do this. This is what I might expect to record: Sub Macro1() ' ActiveWorkbook.ChangeLink Name:= _ "C:\Users\Robertc\Desktop\Book1.xlsb" _ , NewName:="Book2.xlsb", Type:=xlExcelLinks End Sub Any ideas? Robert.
