Is it possible for you to attach a copy/sample of the spreadsheet?

I don't if I'll have time today to strip out all the customer's data, but I'll try.

Search for the square bracket [ in all worksheets of your file. One of those would be referring to an unavailable file location. If that does not work then check the charts on the workbook. Delete them one at a time to see which one contains the invalid reference.

I just noticed that I have a defined name that will not delete. Does this name look familiar? If so, how do I delete it? I've tried half a dozen times in the Name Manager Add-In and it won't delete. It doesn't show up in the regular Name Manager.

The name is xlfn.SUMIFS and it refers to =#NAME?
