Can Excel 97 paste only URLs?

By Tech-butnotIT ·
I'm just meeting Excel 97 for the first time and discovered I can copy and paste a web pages table into a spreadsheet. Unfortunately, URLs in the table are not visible on the pasted spreadsheet. I'd like the cells to not display the "Friendly name",as this causes the user to depend on the spreadsheet to remember the URL, and thus they won't know where to get the information later.

Lets try this again....
Pasting a URL into a spreadsheet, users see, for example, "Goggles". The underlying URL however might be:,,,/whatever.htm. How to convince Excel to show the http:// stuff as opposed to the "Gogles" friendly name.
