To extract the actual URl from the hyperlinks in Excel (the url address), you will need to create a function in Visual Basic. Don’t worry, it’ actually less complicated then you think.

  • Press down ALT and F11 to open up the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications.
  • Click Insert then go to Module and insert the code below inside the module window.

Function GetURL(pWorkRng As Range) As String
'Updateby20140520
GetURL = pWorkRng.Hyperlinks(1).Address
End Function

  • Save the code before you close the window.
  • Go back to your sheet and select a blank cell (where you want to display the URL) and type =GetURL(A1) formula.
  • Press Enter and you’ll be able to see the hyperlink address is extracted.

That’s it!
