I' m opening several html files using excel.
After downloading them using Wget, I do:

objExcelApp.DisplayAlerts = False
Set objExcelSheet = GetObject(strPath)

Problem is, that the html files contain references to images and flash which
are then downloaded at line: Set objExcelSheet = GetObject(strPath). This
takes too long if I do it several times programmically.

I want to tell Excel before the Set objExcelSheet = GetObject(strPath) line
to stay offline and not to connect to the internet.
