Omitting a workbook reference from a copied formula into another workbook

I have copied a worksheet from one workbook to another where on the worksheet I have formulas that refer to another sheet common in both workbooks..eg

Book1   sheet(MyData)  sheet(MyLookUp)

Book2   sheet(MyData)  copied sheet(MyLookUp) from Book1

My problem is that the copied sheet formulas still refer to Book1 sheet(MyData)

I need the copied MyLookUp formulas to now refer to exactly the same structure in  Book2 sheet(MyData)  eg to local sheets  in the local workbook.

How do I overcome this please

Use the Links window to change the source of lookup data.

Excel 2003 menu path - Edit > Links - select linked file and click change source. Browse to new file (book 2 in your case) and accept.

Thanks

Well Thats Office button / Prepare / Edit Links but how do you edit four hundred formulas for links to that other workbook....there has to be a better way than that?

Isn't there a simple way of copying/moving  a sheet from one workbook to another workbook without the links updating (temporary fooling it) before reconnecting it to the new datasheet in the new workbook.
