Hi, When I open my workbook I'm getting the following message (and then subsequently every time i try to do anything...):

"Microsoft excel cannot calculate a formula. There is a circular reference in an open workbook, but the references that cause it cannot be listed for you. Try editing the last formula you entered or removing it...".
- Only option is 'Okay'

Now, i just opened the workbook and this started happening. There's no option to press undo. As far as i know, no formulas calculating to outside workbooks...

And no, going to 'Error checking' doesnt work. There's no option to click the circular reference button.

Any suggestions anyone?
