How to Extract Hyperlink Address (URL) in Excel Using VBA UDF

Let's say you got an Excel workbook from your colleague where you have a list of hyperlinks in a column.

Now from this list, you want to extract all the hyperlink URL addresses.

The manual method is a real pain, you need to copy-paste each URL one by one.

So the better way is to create a UDF in VBA. And, today I'd like to share with you a simple code for this UDF.

VBA code to Extract Hyperlink URLs

Function GiveMeURL(rng As Range) As String
On Error Resume Next
GiveMeURL = rng.Hyperlinks(1).Address
End Function

How to use this Code

To use this UDF, you need to follow these steps:

  1. Open visual basic editor from developer tab or use keyboard shortcut ALT + F11.
  2. Insert a new module, paste above code into it and close it.
  3. Now in your worksheet, enter function [=GiveMeURL(A1)] and hit enter.

It will return the URL from the cell where you have a hyperlink.
