We have 2 files that are linked and one of them has been deleted (some 12 or more months ago and only just realised today). It keeps bringing up the box to look for the file.

Can we remove or delete a link within a file?

You can teach Excel a new custom list. Type the list in cells, File, Options, Advanced, Edit Custom Lists, Import, OK

if you have Excel 2002+, you can go to Edit > Links and select Break links. It will change the links to hard-coded values. If you are using an older version of Excel, find the file name and use the Find function (CTRL+F) to search for the name across all sheets and break the links manually. Don't forget to look in Named ranges and charts for rogue links!
