Unable to create a cross-object formula referencing standard or custom fields, Error: null

Knowledge Article Number 000187559
Description
When trying to create a cross-object formula referencing standard or custom fields via the standard lookup, "Check Syntax" results in  Error: null
 
If clicking Save, 
 
Error: Invalid Data. 
Review all error messages below to correct your data.
null (Related field: Formula)
Resolution This may be due to a lookup filter having been created that no longer has an existing relationship.
For example, a lookup filter had been created for the Service Contract Object, but Entitlements has since been disabled.
 
When you save the formula, we gather info on other formulas on the Object as well and this is why when you try to create a new one it will fail.

You will need to deactivate the affected Lookup filter. 
In this example, re-enable Entitlements, disabled the Filter, and then disable Entitlements again.
