It happens
- when a cell/ row/ column are deleted.
- when a cell/ row/ column is cut and copied in to some other location

stop using the above things and use copy & paste instead of cut.
instead of deleting entire row/ cell/ column, try deleting contents of it.

When the link is "lost", how do you get it back? Do you have to relink to
the source workbook?
