Default Can VBA edit hyperlink(s) address

I am moving an Excel spreadsheet with about 3000 hyperlinks from C: drive to
U: drive (servor) and need to revise the hyperlinks accordingly. While I'm at
it, I can take an unneccessary folder (....../folder/....) out of the
address. I tried writing VBA to do this without success. Suggestions? Thank
you in advance. Doug

Hi Doug

I copy this from David McRitchie his site
http://www.mvps.org/dmcritchie/excel/buildtoc.htm#hyp

Sub Fix192Hyperlinks()
Dim OldStr As String, NewStr As String
OldStr = "http://192.168.15.5/"
NewStr = "http://hank.home.on.ca/"
Dim hyp As Hyperlink
For Each hyp In ActiveSheet.Hyperlinks
hyp.Address = Replace(hyp.Address, OldStr, NewStr)
Next hyp
End Sub

If you want to fix the display text you can also include .TextToDisplay

This is helpful but I think it doesn't solve my problem. Thank you.

It looks like this solution replaces old with new. I need to edit each hyp
the same way (ie c:\target\folder\folder\filename to
u:\target\folder\filename) because each hyp goes to a different file.

Thanks again and in advance. Doug

Try it

It use replace to change the path not the file name
