Office 2007 – Update links on save – Registry Setting – KB928737

I needed to uncheck the Update links on save in Excel 2007 options. There is a Microsft KB aricle about this setting:

KB928737 – A hyperlink does not work in an Excel 2007 client workbook that is published to Excel Services in SharePoint Server 2007

Microsoft show the manual method, but I need the registry setting so it can be applied via Group Policy Preferences.

After exporting to registry snapshots I used WinMerge to see what has changed.

The new registry setting is:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Common\Internet]
“DoNotUpdateLinksOnSave”=dword:00000001

DWORD = 0 (Checked) Default
DWORD = 1 (Unchecked)
