To view and manage linked spreadsheets any time:
1. Open the Data tab on the menu bar.
2. Click on Link Spreadsheet. A dialog box with the list of already linked spreadsheets will open.
3. You can click on the 'Delete' icon next to the spreadsheets' name to delete it.
The following is a list of common errors you may come across, as well as potential reasons for encountering them:
The possible reason could be
1. If you or any of the collaborators don't have access to the spreadsheet.
2. If you had previously linked the spreadsheets but deleted the link after copy-pasting the data.
The range you've referred to is not found. Check if you've furnished the sheet name correctly while specifying the range that you want to import. Ensure that the sheet name in the range is enclosed within single quotation marks.
Renaming the linked sheet will result in the formula throwing a #REF error. You'll have to edit the formula and enter the new name to fix this.
Say for instance, you're trying to import the range 'Sheet1.A1' from 'January 2020' to 'February 2020'. If the A1 cell in 'Jan 2020' is already an imported copy of 'Sheet1.A1' from 'February 2020', then the function throws a #CIRCULARREF error.
An unexpected error occurred while trying to fetch your data.
It took longer than usual to fetch the ranges from the spreadsheet 'January 2020'. The volume of data imported and the stability of your internet connection are often reasons why there is a #TIME_OUT error.
