    Is there a way to "Break Links" when referencing other tabs?

    Unfortunately I think I know the answer to this. I often do vlookups to other workbooks and love being able to copy/paste values simply by using the "Break Links" function. Lets me leave some formulas up, while getting rid of others. I'm currently in a workbook that has about 15K vlookups to other tabs. There are a lot of different sections, so rather than having to highlight an area and copy/paste values, go to the next area, repeat, multiple times to remove the formulas, I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas on a way to remove the references to the other tabs quicker. Thoughts?

    As mentioned in the initial post, Copy/Paste values is what I'm trying to avoid having to do. With the nature of the spreadsheet that still takes a significant amount of time as it has to be done in several segments (can't just highlight the whole sheet).

    Maybe define multiple ranges for the appropriate cells, and do the pastes by value in VBA. If you don't want to do VBA you still might save time using range names.
