    formula with an external reference Invalid (Excel 2000)

    I have a workbook which has no external references that I know of, and there should not be any. Every time I save a ew version of my workbook i get an alert message, "Your formula contains invalid external references to a worksheet, verify that the path,workbook, range name or name reference are correct.

    anyone know how i can get rid of this annoying little message, fixing the problem within the workbook?

    Hunch: your problem was caused by a chart series formula?
