Trace links between worksheets within one workbook

Hi Gurus!!

I have a workbook that contains about 20 worksheets. Some of these
worksheets are operations files from other departments, but others are a
consolidation of the data. Not only are there hundreds of links to other
workbooks, but there are hundreds of links between worksheets within the same
workbook. Is there any way I can trace all of these links (aside from doing
it manually)? This document is carrying a lot of extra baggage, and that is
making it extremely difficult for me to understand what is going on.

As I was searching for the answer to this question, I stumbled upon a tool
posted by Bill Manville titled "find links". This is a super cool tool, and
one I am definitely keeping, but it does not give the option on searching
within the same workbook for links. Here is a quick link for those
interested in this handy, dandy tool..

FindLink.xla has the function of searching for links to sheets within a
workbook.

You just use the search option and type in the keyword,,,,,,,,,sheet name or
range name.

Other options are listing the links, deleting the links or editing the
links.

I presume you don't want to use the "Trace Dependants" and "Trace Precedents"
tools that can be found in formula auditing?

I could use that feature, but I was hoping for a solution that would be a
little less time consuming. There really are hundreds of these links...
