How to quickly list all hyperlinks in Excel?

Author: Xiaoyang Last Modified: 2020-06-05

When we use a worksheet, maybe we create many hyperlinks in it, and sometimes we need to know where the texts link to. If you click them one by one, it will be tedious and time-consuming. If we can list all hyperlinks with texts and hyperlinks addresses in a worksheet, it will be easy for us to check all the hyperlinks in Excel.

List all selected hyperlinks with VBA code

1. Select the range which contanis the hyperlinks that you want to list.

2. Click Developer>Visual Basic, a new Microsoft Visual Basic for applications window will be displayed, click Insert>Module, and input the following code into the Module:

Option Explicit
Private Function GetHyperAddy(Cell As Range) As String
On Error Resume Next
GetHyperAddy = Cell.Hyperlinks.Item(1).Address
If Err.Number <> 0 Then GetHyperAddy = "None"
On Error GoTo 0
End Function
Sub DistillHyperlinks()
Dim HyperAddy As String, cl As Range, wsTarget As Worksheet, clSource As Range
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Set clSource = Selection
On Error Resume Next
Set wsTarget = Sheets("Hyperlink List")
If Err.Number <> 0 Then 
Set wsTarget = Worksheets.Add
With wsTarget
.Name = "Hyperlink List"
With .Range("A1")
.Value = "Location"
.ColumnWidth = 20
.Font.Bold = True
End With
With .Range("B1")
.Value = "Displayed Text"
.ColumnWidth = 25
.Font.Bold = True
End With
With .Range("C1")
.Value = "Hyperlink Target"
.ColumnWidth = 40
.Font.Bold = True
End With
End With
Set wsTarget = Sheets("Hyperlink List")
End If
On Error GoTo 0
For Each cl In clSource
HyperAddy = GetHyperAddy(cl)
If Not HyperAddy = "None" Then
With wsTarget.Range("A65536").End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0)
.Parent.Hyperlinks.Add Anchor:=.Offset(0, 0), _
Address:="", SubAddress:=(cl.Parent.Name) & "!" & (cl.Address)
.Offset(0, 1).Value = cl.Text
.Hyperlinks.Add Anchor:=.Offset(0, 2), Address:=HyperAddy
End With
End If
Next cl
End Sub

3. Then click doc-multiply-calculation-3 button to run the code. And all of the hyperlinks will be displayed in a new worksheet called Hyperlink List. See screenshot:

seems you forgot to tell folks to select a range. if I select a range of cells it creates the list, otherwise I get an empty list like yael did.

This was a life saver. For anyone looking to have the hyperlink display where documents are stored on a network path, this should work for you. I didn't select anything, followed the steps, and it created a new sheet with the links expanded which I was able to turn into plain text and use as raw data.

Hi, It seems that the address selection applies to only web pages and not to other places in the document. - SH

This is awesome! Is there a way to show the full path? It seems to be truncating the file path a little.
