Can't Delete a Linkage Error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello:

    I just took on a new VBA project, but when I open the workbook, I receive this error:

    "This workbook contains links to one or more external sources that could be unsafe"

    "If you trust the links, update them to get the latest data.  Otherwise, you can keep working with the data you have"..

    I have two choices:  Update or Don't update.

    I want to break the meaningless link, but when I navigate to the Excel menu: Data, Queries and Connections, Edit  Links, one option is to "Break Link".  When I do that, nothing happens.  It simply won't go away.  I'm running Excel 2016. I also went to "Formula, Name Manager", and it doesn't show up.

    Here's the strange link name: tf039869742.

    Any ideas on how to delete this?

    Regards,
