Finding dependancies between Sheets

I have received a spread sheet that I need to reverse engineer (excuse me if I have chosen the wrong words) but I am not having any luck finding what is referencing a particular cell. I can use the dependancy 'button' but this doesn't help when the reference is on another sheet, it only tells me that there is a dependancy. Is there a way to find what cell(s) is referencing a particular cell even when it is on another sheet?

Formula for Yesterday
Name Manager, New Name. Yesterday =TODAY()-1. OK. Then, use =YESTERDAY in any cell. Tomorrow could be =TODAY()+1.

Welcome to the board.

If you go to tools --> formula auditing --> trace dependents, Excel will show an arrow pointing to an icon of a spreadsheet if there is a dependent cell on another page. Try double clicking on the arrow for a list of dependents.

Thank you,

I tried double clicking on the spreadsheet icon, it never occured to me to click on the arrow.
