    Remove book Level Link (Excel 2000 Sp2)

    I have a workbook that has a book level link (set to update automatically on opening). I have tried to delete this using the Microsoft Remove Links wizard and Rob Bovey's excellent Excel Utilities but neither will shift it. The link appears to have some sort of rogue name (see below)


    Scope Name Refers To
    Book-level  ='CataExcel[test1.xls]Sheet2'!#REF!


    I have tried moving the worksheets to a new workbook, changing the link source and tried creating some simple vba to change the object name to "fred" and delete "fred" but this has all failed.

    Does anyone have any idea how I can delete this rogue link?

    Many thanks

    John

    You have a corrupt name in your workbook.

    Download my name manager from the Excel MVP page below and use that to try to delete the name. The Name Manager will then prompt you to fix the corrupt name. Give it a valid name and repeat the deletion.

    (Edited by HansV to update link to Excel MVP site)

    Another utility to try is Excel MVP Bill Manville's FindLink. You can download it from The Excel MVP Page.
