    You're all welcome ... I'm still working on making it possible to modify the Data Link (especially those Excel ones). I'm trying this because I'm fed-up waiting for the edit mode to open in that Data Link Manager when I want to e.g. "remove formatting" from the Excel link. Try do that with 20+ links on your DWG. Unfortunately this seems to be s bit less easy.

    When I use the provided lsp and DCL, after I select the link and click delete item, it ask me if I am sure, I click yes, the dialog box "close" button disapears and AutoCAD 2009 locks up, stop responding.

    Any ideas?

    No sorry, I haven't tested it in 2009 (only 2008 ). Is this link used in a table inside the drawing? Or is all references to this link already deleted (i.e. table deleted)? What type of datalink is this (link to tags in DWGs or Excel)?

    We're in the process of upgrading, but I'm yet to receive my 2009. When I get it, I'll check this problem & debug.

    The table is still in the drawing.

    The link is to an excel file.

    My remedy was to use "Spurge" by Manusoft. It found the datalink and I was able to do a "Hard" Purge.
