To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.· 1 years agoHi, thanks for the visual basic trick; I am not familiar with any programming, but this instruction was very clear and easy to follow. I still had to individually clear the icon in the cells, but at least hyperlinks were removed in one go. Thanks again!
