Remove Excel Data Link

1788 Views, 8 Replies

I am using Rel 2013 C3D

 

My question is. How do I remove excel data links from my Reference Manager (see attached image). What I have been doing is AutoCad erasing the graphics from my drawing but the link still remains in the xref manager window.

 

 

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

Type in DATALINK.  Right-click on the datalinks and select Delete.

Todd, I am working in a file where I am not using data links. When I check my reference list, there are some data links that are referenced. I have tried to delete them, but they will not delete. I tried to delete them from the data link manager, and it says that they cannot be deleted because they are in use. I never have had data tables in this file that would use a datalink. Any thoughts on how to get rid of this link?

Working in C3D 2013...the dxedel did not work.  Links still listed in Xref manager and not able to be removed, detached, etc.  No data tables exist in drawing.  Are there any other solutions to this issue?  Any help would be appreciated.  Thank you!

Yes I have. There are no data links listed in the data link manager.
