how do you remove the dollar sign from a link.

See example,

='[Mat Leave Summary.xls]Mar 2009'!$P$23

All of a sudden, all my formulas have this dollar sign in the equation?

That happens when you link to an external workbook. When you're entering the formula, you can hit F4 on this part $P$23 to toggle absolute references.

For exisitng formulas you can use Find & Replace. Find-->$ Relace with nothing.
