Circular Reference and CriticalException error


One of my master sheets is showing this error when trying to save. I have also noticed that one formula that has worked for months is now showing as #circularreference for all rows. How can I fix this?

formName: ajax

formAction: fa_gridSave

serverStatus: false

serverStatusText: CriticalException

errorCode: 18

    Hi @Mark Barany

    Try the following, and if it still doesn’t work, and If you haven’t already, I would recommend that you reach out to the Smartsheet Support Team.

    • Try another browser
    • Try the browser in incognito/private mode.
    • Try on another computer.

    Did any of those options work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic day!
