    Cannot Break links in excel

    "I am trying to break a link to a temporary file in excel and it will not go away!"
    I have tried the break link function, updating link, deleting the file but nothing is working. Any suggestions?

    Welcome to the forum!
    What do you mean by 'link'? hyperlink? connections?

    I mean how do you create the link?

    If it's via hyperlink you can right-click on the link and select [Remove Hyperlink]; else if it's via data connections you can go to the [Data] menu, click [Connections] and Remove it. Or perhaps you're referring to something else

    It will be where in the past, a cell will be refering to information in another workbook. The problem is, I dont want it to link to those workbooks!

    It's not a hyperlink or a data connection

    Perhaps you could share a sample workbook so that members can take a look at it and try figure it out?
    It's hard to imagine how it's 'linked'...
