    I'm also having this issue. I have a sheet with cross sheet references and the formulas are all giving a "0". At first, I got an error message saying that I had exceeded the max amount of references in one sheet (25000 cells). I deleted some of the older data columns hoping that would resolve the capacity issue and still none of the formulas are updating. All the formulas are just showing 0 when I know this is wrong because there is data in the reference sheet that meets the formula criteria.

    I'd recommend trying resetting/updating the reference(s) by changing the names/selecting another range and then change back to the original.

    Did it work?

    I hope that helps!

    Have a fantastic weekend!

    Hi - Clearing history/cookie/cache and close down browser and starting over used to fix this problem. However, today, I can't even re-set the reference. When I select other column to try to "re-set" sheet reference, it carries over the same reference name and it won't even recognize the change. It's been weird. :( Any other suggestion?
