Remove Link but Keep the data



Is there to keep the previous data if the Reference if deleted.

I have this formula

=IF(vlookup(referencetoanotherSheer)=x, True). But if the other Sheet is deleted, I want it to maintain the value instead of showing #REF

    Hi @Bhargava Ram Kummamuru,

    Try Copy / Paste-Special Values.

    That will replace the link with the actual data values.

    I hope that helps.
