    The link is to an excel file.

    My remedy was to use "Spurge" by Manusoft. It found the datalink and I was able to do a "Hard" Purge.
    I was unable to find the link using Spurge OR make use of the lisp routine. When I try DictEdit I receive an error message. I just want these things gone!

    Congrats on your 1st post, could you give some more info on what error you get? Also what version of AC are you using? Alternatively, could you post the offending DWG?

    error: bad argument type: consp nil
    but dxe was erased.

    Bummer. I tried this in 2010 and got this: "; error: quit / exit abort"

    Still searching for a way to remove the links...

    Have you installed the VBA plugin for 2010? The lisp file is calling functions that are vb based. The lisp works like a charm on my 2010 install but I have the VBA plugin installed.
    If that doesnt work which it should do you have the .dcl and .lsp file in your support path?
    Link to plugin
    Hope this helps!

    I figured it out for 2010. Select the table, then activate one cell, just so the cell has the bold outline on it. Right click on the cell and select "Data Link" then "Detatch Data Link" and "Yes" when prompted. You'll then need to open the Data Link Manager (DATALINK), right click on the link(s) and select Delete. Just be sure all link references have been detatched before opening DATALINK.

    The key is having a cell selected instead of the entire table.

    you do the same thing in 2008 & 2009. you must detach link before deleting it. If you don't the link will stay around
