Extract links from word (gray hyperlinks)

Extract links from word (gray hyperlinks)

Extract links from word (gray hyperlinks)

I usually save to notepad or Access, but Tweets require Word to see gray hyperlinks, which must be separately selected between double quotes from within Hyperlink tag.
(Not a Programmer nor write code.)

Instead of extracting only links in wrong order to a new doc ..

Below code (I changed) extracts/inserts link before gray hyperlink, inplace within tweet, within current document. (Inserting after gray hyperlink makes extracted link gray also).

It's 99% there, but how to also extract date and time along with status url?

{HYPERLINK "https://twitter.com/accountname/status/792726" \o "7:27 AM - 26 Nov 2019" }
Tweet message.

Word macro code:

Sub HlinkChanger()
Dim oRange As Word.Range
Dim oField As Field
Dim link As Variant
With ActiveDocument
' .Range.AutoFormat '(orig) I commented out
For Each oRange In .StoryRanges
For Each oFld In oRange.Fields
If oFld.Type = wdFieldHyperlink Then
For Each link In oFld.Result.Hyperlinks
Selection.InsertBefore (" (" + link.Address + ") ") '(orig) InsertAfter
'Selection.InsertBefore (" (" + link.Address & " " & link.SubAddress + ") ")
Next link
End If
Next oFld
Set oRange = oRange.NextStoryRange
Next oRange
End With
End Sub

RE: Extract links from word (gray hyperlinks)

One way:


Sub Demo()
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Dim hLnk As Hyperlink
With ActiveDocument
  For Each hLnk In .Hyperlinks
  .Range.InsertBefore Trim(Replace(Split(hLnk.Range.Fields(1).Code.Text, "HYPERLINK")(1), Chr(34), "")) & vbCr
End With
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub
