How to copy hyperlink only from one cell to another in Excel?

Supposing, I have a list of values in column A and each cell contains a different hyperlink, now, I want to copy only the hyperlinks without text to another column E as following screenshot shown. May be there is no direct way to solve this job in Excel, but here, I can introduce a VBA code for dealing with it.

To only copy the hyperlink addresses without the text to other cells, the following code can do you a favor, please as this:

1. Hold down the ALT + F11 keys to open the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window.

2. Click Insert > Module, and paste the following code in the Module Window.

VBA code: copy hyperlink only from one cell to another:

Sub CopyHyperlinks()
'Uodateby Extendoffice
    Dim xSRg As Range
    Dim xDRg As Range
    Dim I As Integer
    Dim xAddress As String
    On Error Resume Next
    xAddress = ActiveWindow.RangeSelection.Address
    Set xSRg = Application.InputBox("Please select the original range you want to copy hyperlinks:", "KuTools For Excel", xAddress, , , , , 8)
    If xSRg Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
    Set xDRg = Application.InputBox("Please select the new range you want to paste the hyperlinks only", "KuTools For Excel", , , , , , 8)
    If xDRg Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
    Set xDRg = xDRg(1)
    For I = 1 To xSRg.Count
        If xSRg(I) <> "" And xDRg.Offset(I - 1) <> "" Then
            If xSRg(I).Hyperlinks.Count = 1 Then
                xDRg(I).Hyperlinks.Add xDRg(I), xSRg(I).Hyperlinks(1).Address
            End If
        End If
    Next
End Sub

3. And then press F5 key to run this code, a dialog box will pop out to remind you to select the cells which you want to copy the hyperlinks only, see screenshot:

doc copy hyperlink to another cell 02

4. And then click OK, then select the cells that you want to paste the hyperlins only in another dialog box, see screenshot:

doc copy hyperlink to another cell 03

5. And the hyperlink addresses have been copied from the original cells to the specified cells as you need, see screenshot:

doc copy hyperlink to another cell 04

Note: This code also can help you to copy the hyperlinks from one sheet to another sheet as you want.

Lets say in your cell A1 is hyperlink, so to get the path of the hyperlink just create formula like below:
>> (MID((FORMULATEXT(A1));(FIND("(";(FORMULATEXT(A1)))+2);(FIND(";";(FORMULATEXT(A1)))-1)-(FIND("(";(FORMULATEXT(A1)))+2))) <<

Doesn't work for me; does the fact that I'm still using Excel 2007 matter?

OK, so you won't publish my comment - which is fair. But if you want me to register and log in, then you need to show me solutions that work, because (on the basis of one non-working instance) I've seen nothing to persuade me that there's any value in registering.

I made the following edits to work for my use case:
Sub CopyHyperlinks()
'Uodateby Extendoffice
Dim xSRg As Range
Dim xDRg As Range
Dim I As Integer
Dim xAddress As String
On Error Resume Next
xAddress = ActiveWindow.RangeSelection.Address
Set xSRg = Application.InputBox("Please select the original range you want to copy hyperlinks:", "KuTools For Excel", xAddress, , , , , 8)
If xSRg Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
Set xDRg = Application.InputBox("Please select the new range you want to paste the hyperlinks only", "KuTools For Excel", , , , , , 8)
If xDRg Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
Set xDRg = xDRg(1)
For I = 1 To xSRg.Count
If xSRg(I).Hyperlinks(1).Address <> "" Or xSRg(I).Hyperlinks(1).SubAddress <> "" Then
If xSRg(I).Hyperlinks.Count = 1 Then
xDRg(I).Hyperlinks.Add Anchor:=xDRg(I), _
Address:=xSRg(I).Hyperlinks(1).Address, _
SubAddress:=xSRg(I).Hyperlinks(1).SubAddress
'ScreenTip:=xSRg(I).Hyperlinks(1).ScreenTip, _
'TextToDisplay:=xSRg(I).Hyperlinks(1).TextToDisplay
End If
End If
Next
End Sub
