Extracting Hyperlink Text From Cell For Editing?

Jun 6, 2013

I have inherited multiple spreadsheets with thousands of hyperlinks in a single column, from all of which I need to extract the hyperlink text to audit it and edit it. The hyperlinks are only displaying less than useful words such as "Go To" "View" or "Click Here", for example.

Manually, I can right-click on the cell, select Edit Hyperlink, press Ctrl+End to select the entire link, press Ctrl+C to copy it, click on OK to close the editing dialogue, then paste it in the destination cell. That's easy, and good if you only have a few to do, but very tiresome if you have more than a dozen. Life's too short to do all those I need to do manually with a 29 day deadline!

I tried setting up a Macro to do it for me, but couldn't get it to work down a column and paste the result in the destination cell on the same row as each successive cell was located. I do very little Macro work, and I find Excel to be less than intuitive in this respect, so I gave up. (At least in Word you can see the whole step-by-step process in the Macro Editing window and easily fix it, if need be...).

One previous discussion, dating from 2006, supplied two answers. See [URL]

Should I set up a Macro and insert the above Function into it? Or is there a completely different way to do it? how to do this in Excel 2003/WinXP is very welcome.

Editing Macro To Allow Dynamic Ranges?

Oct 31, 2011

having trouble editing the code to allow for dynamic ranges. I have tried to research online, but am having a hard time with it. I think I would understand better if I could see a practical example.

Here is the sample macro I recorded in Excel that I am working with:

Sub Macro1()
' Macro1 Macro
ActiveSheet.Range("$A$1:$C$87").RemoveDuplicates Columns:=Array(1, 2, 3), _
End Sub

How can I edit this to allow for dynamic rows and columns?

Editing A Macro VBA Code To Take A Password

Nov 24, 2006

i currently have created a macro for copy a selection of cells from one work book to another. The file were i am copying the cells from is Track_&_Trend_00.xls. In this there is a password to open and modify. The sheet that the cells are being pasted to is TRACK & TREND.xls. There is no password on this. My macro runs fine only that midway through it asks for the password to open and the password to modify for the sheet Track_&_Trend_00.xls.

I wonder ifany one would know about entering input lines of code below to automatically put these passwords in and not having the two password dialog boxes pop up midway through running the macro.

ChDir "T:Track & Trend"
Workbooks.Open Filename:= _
"T:Track & TrendTrack_&_Trend_00.xls"
ActiveWindow.SmallScroll Down:=-102
Windows("TRACK & TREND.xls").Activate
Application.CutCopyMode = False

Run Macro After Leaving Shape Editing Mode?

May 14, 2014

I've got a macro function which calculates the area of a polygon freeform using the 'shoelace'-methode. I would like to excute this function after i leave the shape editing mode.

For example: I have a square, freeform shape. By right-mouseclick I can edit the shape nodes. If i drag one of the nodes of the square to another position and click outside of the shape, the new shape is updated. Right, on that moment i would like to trigger my macro to recalculate the area.

Is there an event in excel to aim for, like the Worksheet.change-event or something similar?

Editing Existing Macro To Preserve Option Button Settings Upon Activating Worksheet With OBs

Sep 19, 2013

I have been using this code and just noticed that it resets all of my options buttons to false when I exit and then re-enter (activate) the sheet with the option buttons.

I see where this is going on, but don't know how to correct it. I only want the option buttons changed to false if

The Sol named range is something other than "Primary Vendor". It seems to call the macro ClearOB whenener the sheet is activated.

Private Sub Worksheet_Activate()
If Range("Sol").Value = "Primary Vendor" Then
For Each OB In ActiveSheet.OptionButtons
OB.Enabled = True
Next OB
ActiveSheet.ScrollArea = "A1:K58"

Macro To Hyperlink

Jul 29, 2008

I have a hyperlink generated from a vlookup that is generated from the result of a combo box click, so the reference in the hyperlink cell will change to whatever sheet the vlookup dictates.

Then I have a macro assigned to a button ( Called 'Go' ) that when pressed clicks on the hyperlink and takes me to that corresponding sheet.

When I recorded the macro, it clicked on the hyperlink cell when it was hyperlinking to let's say Sheet 'April', but if I click on let's say September, in the combo box, then of course the hyperlink now links to the September sheet, but if I click the 'Go' button with the macro attached, it still takes me to 'April'.

surely, the macro simply follows the steps I recorded and therefore should now be clicking on the hyperlink that now says 'September'. Surely, the macro shouldn't REMEMBER that it originally clicked on 'April'.

Macro & Hyperlink

Mar 17, 2007

I have a workbook with over 40, identically formated, sheets. Each sheet has 96 pages. One page for each roll of carpet. To hunt for the next blank page to use, is time consuming.


On each sheet, Range B207:B303, I have IF formulas that will display the carpet ID number for each page, if one is present, or the cell remains blank. In Range C207:C303, I have Hyperlinks to the pages on the sheet.

I need a macro that will search the Range in column B for the first blank cell, then automatically use the Hyperlink next it in column C. Then I can assign the macro to a button, copy and past the button on all 40 sheets. With one click of the button, I will instantly be taken to the page availabel for data entry on that sheet.

Addition Of Hyperlink To Macro

Jan 16, 2013

I have a macro that basically captures all of the errors in my spreadsheet and summarizes them under 3 columns (Value in Cell, Sheet, Cell) so that I can quickly identify the error message as well as it's location. I wanted to take it a set further and add a hyperlink for each error so that the user can quickly go to the error location to investigate. I really don't care where the hyperlink is located as far as which 3 columns.


curRow = ActiveCell.Row + 3

Hyperlink Does Not Cause 'worksheet_activate' Macro To Run

Nov 21, 2006

I have the following
Private Sub Worksheet_Activate()

Application.ScreenUpdating = False

updateall = MsgBox("Do you want to update the previous balance?", vbYesNo)
If updateall = vbYes Then
' clear previous payments
Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlDown)).Select
' update previous balance
Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks:= _
False, Transpose:=False
End If
Application.ScreenUpdating = True

End Sub

Now, this works just fine if the user clicks the sheet itself. However, generally they are accessing sheets via hyperlinks, which do not seem to activate this code. Is there a better/different way to ensure when the user gets to a sheet via hyperlink, they still see the msgbox?[/b]

Macro To Select Hyperlink Formula?

Oct 16, 2011

Ive got this macro used to search for a particular code in an excel sheet with about 4000 codes, each assigned a hyperlink.

my goal is to make the user enter the hyperlink automatically in the code upon hitting search.

So far this is what i have:

the problem is that it only works with hyperlinks which are assigned a link (right click assign hyperlink) and not codes which work with a formula for example =HYPERLINK("", "ABC123")

Sub searchsheet()
'Opens box and ask what do they want to search
searchthis = InputBox("Type in a location keyword.", "Property Search")

Macro To Pull Up Hyperlink Prompt

Mar 15, 2013

I'm trying to create a macro that I can assign to a clip art pic that will pop up the Insert Hyperlink prompt when I click on the picture. So basically anytime I click on the pic for the 1st time I'd like to be able enter the url address of my choosing but if I were to click on that pic again I want it to go to the Hyperlink address I previously entered.

I should note that I tried recording a macro by first by clicking on Record Macro then press ctrl + k and then click Stop Recording but it wouldn't stop recording. I had to first click Cancel on the Insert Hyperlink prompt and then I was able to Stop Recording so this attempt was unsuccessful.
