Excel 2007 Workbook comes up with VALUE errors in Excel 2010

Hello All,

Having some issues.. We have a excel spreadsheet created in 2007.  Well I am able to open in 2007 excel with no issues.. I open in 2010 excel and receive the dreaded VALUE errors.. I find out the cell is linked to an external source.. well i dont have access to that source any longer.  In 2007 I am able to still view the values in the cells, but in 2010 I am unable to see any values.. is there any way to overcome this in 2010 just so that I can print the worksheet?

Open the worksheet in Excel 2007 and go the cell in question. You should be able to Copy and then Paste Value in place. Now it is not a formula or a link. Do this for all affected cells, save and now the file will open in Excel 2010.

1.  Open the file in Excel 2007
2.  On the Data...Edit Links menu item, select the workbook you no longer have access to and then choose Break Links. That will replace the link with the values last returned by that link.
3.  Save the file, and you should be good to go when you open it in Excel 2010
