Hi, I need your help breaking the links in my workbook. I go to data + edit links and do break but it doesn't break! Also before doing this I would like to check on the formulas that have these links! I've searched in the workbook through formulas .xl but excel displays it can't find it

I have an Excel file that, when opened, said it is unable to open certain files that are linked to my file. However, my file contains absolutely zero links that I use. I am unsure where these links exist in the file but when I go to edit links and break them, nothing happens. I believe that the file I am using started as template that may have used links and perhaps that is why that prompt exists but the file I current work in does not use any links and I should not be getting prompted about links when I open it like when it says "We can't update some of the links in your workbook right now."

While linking data from one Workbook to data in another, Excel crashed and now when I try to open the file containing the links, security warnings come up and the file will not open. I have tried both options of disabling and updating the links. The excel file is technically open, but the page is blank and I cannot view the data in any sheet or edit anything.
