How can I erase hyperlinks in Excel 2000/2003?

By carlos.nino ·

I have an Excel document with more than 15000 emails in it, and I need to get rid of the hyperlinks so only plain txt is left. I know I can get rid of them one by one by clicking on it and choosing rase Hyperlink from the popup menu, but:
Is there a way to erase them all?

Thanx in advance!

copy and "paste special - values"

by ante_river In reply to How can I erase hyperlink ...

Select entire worksheet, copy and paste special "values" to empty worksheet. (You will lose any formatting, but will rid yourself of hyperlinks).

Or, if you don't want to copy & paste, try this...

1. Type the number 1 in a blank cell, and right-click the cell.
2. Click Copy on the shortcut menu.
While pressing CTRL, select each hyperlink
3. Click Paste Special on the Edit menu.
4. Under Operation, click Multiply and then click OK.

a possible solution to losing all formatting

by marj In reply to copy and "paste special - ...

If you don't want to lose all of your sheet's formatting, another idea that will work if your hyperlinks are in just certain columns is to just copy & paste special "values" of that column to a blank column - then you can cut & paste it back to the original column

quick vba solution

by smith In reply to How can I erase hyperlink ...

You can use the following vba to create a macro that will strip out the hyperlinks.
Save it with the workbook or worksheet and then return to sheet you want to clear and run the macro.

I don't remember where I originally found it but google "remove hyperlinks excel" should bring up several references to this code.

Sub RemoveHyperlinks()

'Remove all hyperlinks from the active sheet

End Sub
