I apparently have a link to another workbook, I no doubt cut and pasted something and brought this pain upon myself.

I go to edit--> Links --> and see one link to another work book, but I can't find what in my spreadsheet is linked to that work book. I searched high and low, looked for #REF, [, ], I even searched every forumla that referenced another sheet ! So now I'm frustrated so I just want to break the link and see what happens if anything, so I clicked break links, and nothing happened. I've not clicked break links 5 times and I still have the link to this workbook.

Is there a way to find what is linked and destroy it or at least rewrite the formula so this update links BS will go away?

Hi

Have you cehcked your defined names? Insert>Name>Define and see if any workbook/worksheet names reference external workbooks. If unneeded, you can then delete these.
