When converting an XLS file to XLSM, an external link of type xlPathMissing is changing to normal externalLinkPath type

Hi Amjad,
This issue looks not fixed with XLS files, I can still see the mentioned behavior with the attached file.
Template-Link-TypeChanged.zip (34.4 KB)
Do you want this to be raised separately as this is XLS file or is it okay to consider in this topic itself.


Thanks for the template file.

Please notice, I am able to reproduce the issue as you mentioned by saving your template XLS file to XLSM file format. I found the external link of type xlPathMissing is changed to normal externalLinkPath type in XLS to XLSM conversion.
