Hello,

I have a word document with some links to excel workbooks. The update process between excel and word was working properly until I started do save these files in One-Drive. 

I've checked the excel links in the word document and they appear ok. But when I try do update (forced, because the automatic process does not work) I receive a message of server authorization problem.

 

Could someone help me with what to do?

Hi@Kdiniz 

 

Are your both files stored on a similar location?

Are both having a full read/write permission?

 

Thank you

Dav,

If you are working on Microsoft office 2016 or 2019 Synchronized your office with one drive so that your files are updated

Hi Kdiniz: I was doing something similar, the way round my problem was to double check everything that all is correct, then synchronized your system with one drive and try to repeating the action again, if you are successful great you have done it, give yourself a pact on your back; if not make sure they are not stored in the same location or similar location and that both have write/read permission, hopefully this will resolve the issue; thank you for taking time to read this feedback of your request for assistance ; signed 3409Mac
