    Default Table - Data Link default / programatic setting change

    We use Paste Special > Paste Link > AutoCAD Entities to create a table linked to Excel. Unfortunately, the setting defaults to "Use Excel formatting > Start with Excel formatting, do not update". I want it to default to "Use Excel formatting > Keep table updated to Excel formatting" Can this be set? Does anyone have a LSP that alters this setting on table that have already been linked?

    Sorry no ... I was trying this a while back, but gave it up as being too difficult & time consuming. Basically I got lost inside the named object dictionary plethora of strangeness . If you want to see what I've done:
    Maybe someone's got a clue as to how to decipher that 91 codes in the datalink entity.
    Knowledge is proportional to experience, but wisdom is inversely proportional to ego!
    My little bit of "wisdom": Hind-sight is useless, unless used to improve the next forethought!
