    Break internal/local links without manual copy/paste

    Hi --

    I often have files with a summary sheet that calculates data from multiple local sheets. Some of the detailed data on those sheets can't be shared and are deleted before sending out the file to a wider audience.

    I'm hoping there's a way to break the links on the summary sheet without having to go the copy/paste values option because I'd still like the local sum formulas to exist and Excel doesn't allow you to copy/paste multiple sections at the same time (& it'd be too tedious to copy/paste each section separately).

    My current move is to transfer the sheet to a blank document, break the links, then move back. Though, I'd rather not have to do this each time if there's a more seamless route.

    Thank you!

    Re: Break internal/local links without manual copy/paste

    What kind/type of links, internal, external ?
    For example:
    1. from formulas (='C:\Temp\[XYZ.xls]Sheet1'!A1, =Sheet2!A1+Sheet3!A1)
    2. from Hyperlinks
    3. from Validation lists
    4. from Conditional formatting
    5. from Named ranges
    etc.
    Present some examples.

    @Rory That's great. Thanks a lot for sharing the code
    I noticed that the code converts the CSE formulas to regular ones. How can CSE formulas be fixed?

    Re: Break internal/local links without manual copy/paste

    You'd have to loop cell by cell for that, I think.

    Edit: actually, a simpler solution may be to only replace formulas that require it:
