Default Finding one or more "Invalid References" in big spreadsheet

I need help with an automatic way to find the one or more formulas in a large
spreadsheet that have "invalid references". Is there a tool or method to
easily find the offending formula(s)?

I have a rather large workbook that has many pivots and a summary scorecard
tab that has approx 5000 formulas in it. I received an error when saving
this workbook as follows: "A formula in this worksheet contains one or more
invalid references. Verify that your formulas contain a valid path,
workbook, range name and cell reference."

Thanks,
BAM

Hi,

Since you haven't told us what version of Excel you are using, you may want
to look through these topics:
