Excel Shortcut: Open VBA Editor's Immediate Window

Ah the number of time's you've hoped that the VBA Editor's Immediate window could be attached to Excel's own window. That's not going to happen soon I think, so here's a tip how to quickly open and activate the Immediate window with some shortcut keys:

Alt + F11 Ctrl + G

Alt + F11 opens VBA Editor and Ctrl + G activates the Immediate window. Convenient way to help your spreadsheet editing especially with short single-line macros.

VBA: Break All External Links in a Workbook

Here's a tip how to break all external links from a workbook:

Sub BreakAllLinks()

    Dim arrStrLinks As Variant
    ' Read workbook links to an array.
    arrStrLinks = ActiveWorkbook.LinkSources(Type:=xlLinkTypeExcelLinks)
    ' Loop through whole array -> all links.
    For i = 1 To UBound(arrStrLinks)
        ActiveWorkbook.BreakLink _
        Name:=arrStrLinks(i), _
    Next i

End Sub

This is actually a slightly modified version of the one you can find from Excel's help with keyword BreakLinks.
