    Formula contains a link to a closed workbook?

    How do I get rid of the link??? I have been up all night trying to figure this out and no help anywhere.
    My formula seems like it is not working because it has a link which I cannot find anywhere.

    I don't get the message, I can't help you with that.
    I adjusted the search range.

    yes that book works fine
    why do you have
    =MATCH(Log!G$1,Inventory_Sheet!$A$9:$H$9,0)
    when it should be
    =MATCH(Log!G$1,Inventory_Sheet!$A$1:$H$1,0)

    I don't get the error that you show concerning links.

    I think that the formula in log!G2 should be this which you can copy across and then down as far as needed:
