Excel file attachment stuck

We have this problem at the moment with an microsoft excel file that appears to have become stuck in the External references list, Ref C1-01-06. We would like to remove it if possible as it is now superseded (we can't change the file name unfortunatly. What do we do if we can't reload, detach or bind? Its not referenced into anything else that is attached to the file, it is a direct attachment of the file that we are in.

have you tried the audit command to fix any errors with this file?

Sorry to reliterate its the link that's stuck not the file itself. Tried audit and that didn't find anything wrong.  Also we tried adding the 'found at' file path thinking that could be the problem but that doesn't sort it either.

sometimes audit will find errors that can affect anything within a file, links included.

 

What about the purge command?  You mentioned the excel file isn't used anymore, maybe a purge can get rid of it (probably not but worth a try)
