Circular Reference Warning One or more formulas contain a circular reference and may not calculate correctly. Circular reference are any refereces within a formula that depend upon the results of that same formula.

2] Open a blank project and try inserting the problematic file and try opening it.
cells are referenced by column and row. columns use a letter reference and rows use a number reference. to reference pages use the page name. For example if you are entering a formula in a cell on a page named sheet2 and part of the information is located on the page named sheet1, you would use a reference as follows:
sheet1!C3 This reference is for the cell on the page named sheet1 in the third column and the third row.
Click the 'Microsoft Office' button and click 'Excel Options'. Click the 'Formulas' button. From 'Calculation options' section, un-select the 'Automatically' option. then use file->open->yourfile.xlsx. It should now open. Find the circular reference and fix it. Then save the file.
The "circular reference" indicates that the xref you are pulling in is also xrefing the drawing file you are in which creates this circular reference to each other. The error message is only a warning and does not prevent you from working and saving changes. To get rid of the error message, close the primary drawing file and then open the reference drawing and DETACH the xref that is linked to your primary drawing. Save the changes and then open the primary drawing file again to see if the error was resolved.
Click the Microsoft Office Button , click Excel Options, and then click the Formulas category.
In the Calculation options section, select the Enable iterative calculation check box.
To set the maximum number of times that Excel will recalculate, type the number of iterations in the Maximum Iterations box. The higher the number of iterations, the more time that Excel needs to calculate a worksheet.
To set the maximum amount of change you will accept between calculation results, type the amount in the Maximum Change box. The smaller the number, the more accurate the result and the more time that Excel needs to calculate a worksheet.
In order to remove this error message you need to locate and remove the incorrect references:
On the Formulas tab, in the Formula Auditing group, click the arrow on the Error Checking in-group button, point to Circular References, and then click the first cell listed in the submenu.
Tip You can move between cells in a circular reference by double-clicking the tracer arrows. Review the formula in the cell. If you cannot determine whether the cell is the cause of the circular reference, click the next cell in the Circular References submenu.
Note The status bar displays the word "Circular References" followed by a reference to one of the cells contained in the circular reference. Continue to review and correct the circular reference until the status bar no longer displays the word "Circular References."
