Excel Links are broken/cant be located

New Contributor

When opening an older excel document, I first get a message to update the excel.

But it fails and gives me the following messages.


I then logged into OneDrive where the file is saved and it gives me a few more options. (as shown below in the snap shots)


What will happen if I select break links?

Will the formulas still work?

I advise not to click Break links. It will turn any formula that contains the link into a hard-coded value! Instead, open the file in desktop Excel and us e a tool like FINDLINK to work out where your link is used exactly: https://manville.org.uk/software/findlink.htm

Sorry about the late and long reply.

Thank you very much for this one...
It has helped me to find and replace those links.


Thank you very much!
