Excel website column hyperlinks to an email addrss

Excel website column hyperlinks to an email addrss

(OP)
OK I've inherited huge customer/prospect spreadsheet with 7,000 records, one of the columns is website. I have found several instances where the physical data says www.mycompany.com, but the link is to an email address, for example johnqpublic@mycompany.com. This is an easy fix, but it is not so easy to find these inconsistent hyperlinks. Is there a way to search for or filter the data where the hyperlink is not the same as the physical data in the cell? I am open to VBA solutions as well.

Any insights appreciated.

RE: Excel website column hyperlinks to an email addrss

Try this little User Defined Function as your formula:

CODE

Function CheckHyperLink(ByRef r As Range) As String

If Range(r.Address).Value = Range(r.Address).Hyperlinks.Item(1).Address Then
    CheckHyperLink = "The Same"
Else
    CheckHyperLink = "Different"
End If

End Function 

So if you have your Hyperlink in cell A2, in B2 type: =CheckHyperLink(A2)

You may need to modify the function to fit your needs.

I was working with this basic, little code to enter the hyperlinks into 2 cells:

CODE

Sub AddLink()

With Application
    .ActiveSheet.Hyperlinks.Add .ActiveSheet.Range("A2"), "http://google.com/", , , "Click Here"
    .ActiveSheet.Hyperlinks.Add .ActiveSheet.Range("A3"), "http://msn.com/", , , "http://msn.com/"
End With

End Sub 

Have fun.

dgillz,

Did you ever get this squared away?
