I received a rather large Excel spreadsheet. When I open it, I get "Do you want to update links to other files?" dialog. Since this spreadsheet is supposed to be independent, I click "No" and I don't see any adverse effects (apparently). I sampled a few cells and didn't see foreign references, but it is not possible without significant manual effort and time to exhaustively test every cell. However, I'd like to discover the source of the question in order to discuss with the sheet author (it may even be the remnant of some other sheet if it was reused for this case).

  1. How to list all referenced files in a spreadsheet ?
  2. Given a foreign file, how can I get at least one referencing cell ?

You can see linked files in Menu/Edit/Links to external files. Then you can search for them with Menu/Edit/Find or Menu/Edit/Find & Replace, the last it's more customizable.
