I am working on staging plans that has 55 total sheets. All sheets are individual sheets. They are already created, and we are not going to place them in to a single file with saved views or models.
The question I have is trying to find a way to update the level overrides in all the sheets without having to open up each sheet individually and turn off a specific override.
For example. our legend is referenced in to each sheet. currently the colors on the legend all print black. When I off the overrides in that sheet for those levels, then print their true colors. I want to do that without going into each file.
Is this possible?

Do you know the MicroStation key-in for that command? If so, you can put that into a batch file and run that using MicroStation's batch processor.

There are a bunch of keyins under help under level keyins which includes turning off overrides in references including colours, styles and weights and its not easy to interpret how the syntax works.. so when I didnt get it right first time in the reference file ... you can study this in your own time....
I returned to the view attributes so I thought if you dont want overrides why not turn them all off just from the active file attributes so it turns off all attributes not just the reference file... manually its easy , so I tried to record a macro to see if I could capture the keyins ... this is always my next port of call when the help keyins dont work,
and I found that the keyin is
MDL KEYIN BENTLEY.VIEWATTRIBUTESDIALOG,VAD VIEWATTRIBUTESDIALOG SETATTRIBUTE 0 LevelOverrides False
and if you include
in your batch processor script it would save the settings in the file ..
I admit this is only good if you dont want any overrides at all so if you want only the ref file overrides turn off we have to go back to the help
level set override color off color-spec [file:file-spec] level-spec
But I cant seem to get this syntax to work

As suggested following key-in needs to be run with Batch Process tool.level set override color OFF file:legend.dgn Level10; update view extended; filedesign

this doesnt work for me if you have a dgnlib with matching level names predefined in your configs
and I change your script to override colour on and add a colour
