How to delete Link to removed documents

Occasional Visitor

Dear everyone,


I have a problem: in the Excelsheet I need to work in, there are three links to documents that have been removed or deleted. How can I delete these links?

When I follow the normal description it doesn't work: I do pres on delete link but nothing happends. I guess because the linked document is gone.

This is the dutch article I used:


I hope sincerely that someone can help me.

If you want to search for and remove hyperlinks in the specific area / cells, have a look at this entry .. is For Excel 2013,2016

Most of them are hidden hyperlinks in the conditional formatting of the cells. To delete them, follow the steps below.
Go to the Home tab –> Conditional Formatting –> Manage Rules –> Delete rules in the entire sheet –> OK.
