Default Can i change multiple hyperlinks at once

I have a large database of files that are hyperlinked in a File Register
created in excel. All of these files have now been moved to a different
drive, but the folder names etc are the same. Is there a quick way to change
the path of the hyperlink, as to do each one individually would take weeks.

Just go to Edit-Replace, and choose part of path which was changed (for
example C:\), and write it in "Find what:" box, than put new patcial path in
"Replace with" box (for example D:\). unselect "Match entire cell
contents:" if it is selected, and click "Replace all".

The following VBA function will replace the drive names as you desire
after you change the words inside the quotes to the desired ones.

Sub ChangeHyperlinks()
Dim h As Hyperlink
Dim oldDr As String, newDr As String

oldDr = "http"
newDr = "ftp"
For Each h In Sheets("Sheet1").Hyperlinks
h.Address = newDr & Mid(h.Address, Len(oldDr) + 1, Len(h.Address))
Next h
End Sub

Huh, its seems not work , because excel don't change path but only text in
the cell. Then you can use formula, for example if hyperlinks are in column
A, put in B1 "=HYPERLINK("D"&RIGHT(A1,LEN(A1)-1))" where D is drive letter
which is changed, and then copy formula to the end of file list. Sorry for
the previous wrong tip.
