Getting Max Allowed Cross Ref Error but only 64K cells cross referenced from other sheets


Greetings all,

I have a smartsheet with 16K rows. each row has 4 columns that have data referenced from other sheets.  That should be a total of 64000 referenced from other sheets. However, I am still getting the "Some cross-sheet formulas can't be updated because this sheet has more cells referenced from other sheets then the maximum allowed (100000).

I have un-hid all columns to ensure there were not hidden references. 

I also have 4 columns that are sending data to other sheets, but that does not seem applicable to the errors dialog since they are not From other sheets.

Does anyone know why I am getting this error?
