I have this link called ooh la berry now it seems to be going into other excel documents.the link that won’t go away when I delete it.  It seems to be worming its way into other files, I wonder if it’s a virus or something.  Now a number of our files have the Ooh-La La Berry link in them and not sure if it happened when I had the two files open at the same time or what.  It’s annoying and now is asking for the link question.

Any assistance please!

Most modern anti virus programs can check your Excel file Macro for infections. I think that's the first step for you.

what do you mean by "It seems to be worming its way into other files,"

So you get same link in other files without you creating them?

Are you copying worksheets from one workbook to another? If so, then any links present in the original workbook will be brought over. These include links in named ranges and charts that are harder to track down than ones in formulas.
