OOCalc linked file issue

Ron Tanguay
 My linked OOCalc spreadsheets have an annoying issue whenever I open them on my desktop computer (iMac using Mac OS Mojave 10.14.5):  any file that is linked to another will not open without flashing an “Update all Links?” message.  Before the file will open, I am required to click on “yes” several times.  Once would be OK but sometimes the “yes” click must be repeated 8 or more times — producing an annoying BEEP each time before the file will open.  Sometimes the warning is “This file contains linksto other files.  Should they be updated?”  But the result — requiring many “yes” clicks before the file will open — is the same.  
Strangely, the same files when opened on my laptop (MacBook Pro) open and automatically update all links without involving this warning.

I cannot find a setting in OOCalc that would fix this.  Can anyone help?  I am using OO 4.1.6 on both computers.

This is done for the user's security. You can disable this by lowering
your security settings (which of course is only recommended if you open
trusted files only).

They are confusingly called "Macro security settings", but setting them
to "low" will remove warnings about linked files as well.
