I uploaded excel spreadsheets that contain hyperlinks to other Excel files to a SharePoint document library. When I opened the hyperlinks in the external storage, everything is working fine. However, when I opened Excel files and clicked on hyperlinks from SharePoint I received that warning, I should click on OK to open the links. I want to remove it, I tried some solutions related to security but it didn't work. Is it related to SharePoint? Any ideas please?

It is not SharePoint issue rather it is Office problem. You can disable this warning going by going to trust center settings of excel.

  • Click the File tab.
  • Click Options.
  • Click Trust Center, and then click Trust Center Settings.
  • In the Trust Center, click Macro Settings.
  • Make the selections that you want.
  • Click OK.
