Broken DDE Links in Calc

I have a number of old broken DDE links in my calc spreadsheet. I have tried to modify and delete them…but each time I reopen the file it tells me about my old broken links. How do I get rid of these please.?

Hi @dunbrokin, Did you ever find a solution for your problem? Thanks!

No, somobody suggested saving it as an xls file and then reopen and delete the links…that works…though it screws up a lot of other things. I still live with the problem!

To break the links:
Menu/Edit/Links - Break Link.

That does not work…the reappear when you reopen Libreoffice.

The answer from Mar 5 (marisov) does not work with LibreOffice 3.5.2 on Windows and ubuntu 10.04.

I have the same result as the previous poster – the links re-appear when you reopen libreoffice.

What I ended up doing was to create a new workbooks and import the existing pages into the new workbook. When I saved the new document the “missing links” were truly removed.

Given the large potential to wreak havoc with this approach, I am also going to try re-creating the link targets, then breaking the links to see if that fixes it.

This appears to my eye to be a bug.
