How to delete old references to external documents (XLS) in Inventor?

A - answer You may want to erase old (dead) references to external Excel tables which are no longer valid. There can be also BMP image files or other OLE documents linked.

The VBA sample macro "MyRefDocs" from Lesson 18 in the VBA programming for AutoCAD and Inventor lessons (in Czech) can help in such situations. It lists all referenced external files in the current Inventor document (part, drawing...), including their file paths. You can also delete the references (the links) globally.
