    File Link (Excel 97 - Serv Pack R2)

    Hello! I'm hoping someone can give me a hint on how to omit a link to a file that doesn't exist anymore. Every time I open this one file it asks me if I'd like to update the links. I no longer have any links (or any that I can find), plus the file it says it's linked to, doesn't exist anymore. I've gone to the toolbar to "Edit" and the selected "Links" and this is where I see the file name and location that doesn't exist anymore. Unfortunately the option to delete the link doesn't exist. I've tried to copy each worksheet in the file to a new file and save to see if the old link goes away, and I have no luck. I've viewed all the formulas in all the worksheets, and see no formulas that would cause it to look for a link... I must be missing something. I'll take any suggestions.
    Thanks!

    Try Bill Manville's FindLink a <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15> addin.

    Note: names may also contain links to other books.

    Thanks to you both for the free "find link" option. It worked... the link is finally deleted!
    Thanks again,
