Remove (Delete) Hyperlinks from Worksheets

Add to Favorites

This macro will remove all hyperlinks from the active worksheet. It will delete the hyperlinks but it will not delete the text of the link. This means that you will still have all of the text left over but without the links to the websites. This is a great macro to use in excel if you import a lot of data from the web or if you import lists of emails or web addresses but do not want them to actually retain their hyperlinks.

This macro will work on the entire active worksheet, you do not need to select any cells.

Where to install the macro:  Module

Sub Remove_All_Hyperlinks()

'Does not delete the hyperlink text, only the link to the site

Do Until ActiveSheet.Hyperlinks.Count = 0
End Sub
