Removing Hyperlinks without a Macro in Excel

If you have ever tried to remove a hyperlink in Microsoft Excel without using a macro, you know that it can be quite a tedious task. There are a few ways that you can go about doing this, but none of them are particularly efficient. In this article, we will show you how to remove hyperlinks without a macro in Excel.

The first method is to use the Find and Replace tool. To do this, simply press Ctrl+F to open the Find and Replace dialog box. In the Find what field, type in the text that you want to remove the hyperlink from. Leave the Replace with field blank, and then click on the Options button. Make sure that the Match entire cell contents checkbox is selected, and then click on the Replace All button.

This method will work fine if you only have a few hyperlinks to remove. However, if you have a lot of hyperlinks, it can be quite time-consuming. Another downside of this method is that it will also remove any other text that matches what you entered in the Find what field.

The second method is to use a macro. This is by far the quickest and most efficient way to remove hyperlinks from your worksheet. To do this, simply press Alt+F8 to open the Macro dialog box. In the Macro name field, type in a name for your macro (we will call ours RemoveHyperlinks).

In the Macro code area, paste the following code:

Sub RemoveHyperlinks() 
 For Each Cell In Selection 
 If Cell.Hyperlinks.Count > 0 Then 
 Cell.Hyperlinks(1).Delete 
 End If 
 Next Cell 
End Sub

Now click on the Run button to run your macro. This macro will loop through all of the cells in your selection and delete any hyperlinks that it finds.
