Word How can I stop Word 2010 asking permission to update a document with an included file?

I have a series of documents which share the same included file (e.g. a table for comments).

I created the "table" document in Word 2010 and saved it. Occasionally the contents of this file require to be changed.

I linked that document into the other Word 2010 documents using Insert>Object>Create From File (with Link To File checked).

The "table" appears in all the documents just fine, but the annoying thing is that every time any of these documents are opened or closed with in Word 2010 there is a dialog box asking if the user wants to update the document they've just opened.

Is there a way of just opening these documents without this dialog appearing?
