"A formula in this worksheet contains one or more invalid references" error

I keep getting this error message whenever I run a fairly complicated macro. Among other things, rows get deleted but all of the named ranges remain intact.As far as I can tell I don't have any paths or cell references with errors. But I'm not sure what they mean by a "valid" workbook.

When I google it, everyone suggests that it has something to do with charts but I don't have any charts on the sheet in question.

Any thoughts?

Thanks,
John

Do you have any charts in the workbook (even if they are not on that sheet)?

Yes I do. One of the suggestions online was just to delete sheets with charts one at a time until you find the offending sheet, then do it one chart at a time. But I haven't done it because the error message doesn't always come up which would make it difficult to tell if you were getting false negatives.

Do any charts use data from that sheet?

The charts don't reference data from that sheet directly, but they do reference tables that get their data from that sheet.

I'd probably need to see a copy of the workbook. (No real data required!)

Seeing a copy would be helpful.  I'm betting that there is a problem between the chart and the tables that reference data from that sheet
