Wouldn't you have to sever the link somehow?

If I open a DWG file and it has a excel link in it, and someone else has the Excel file open, CAD will open the Excel file also and lock up my computer until the dialog box in excel is clicked. Is there any way to stop CAD from opening excel??

It dosent do this if nobody is in the Excel file.
