On the excel documents I'm working with, external links are stored like:
The _external_links member of the workbook object contains the loaded links, however they appear to be in a somewhat random order.
To solve the problem of relating the
 link to the proper link object, I'm sorting the set of links numerically, such that
externalLink1 is loaded in the 1st place and
externalLink2 is loaded second, etc. This allows me to use parse the
 link name from the formula and refer back to
external_links[parsed_index - 1] and get to the actual URL.
My python is very weak, so I don't know if I'm sorting them in any way that makes sense, but it Works For Me.
