    Exclamation How Do I Extract URLs from one set of cells and Insert into another set of cells

    Example:

    I have a worksheet in Excel 2010 Pro Plus that contains a list of "groups" and "pages" that I am a member of on a social media site.

    When I copied those names from the site, the paste function added the hyperlinks to the actual webpage associated with the group or page.

    Now I want to extract the URLs from the list of 20,000 items and insert those URLs into a different column.

    Instead of doing this manually (and going crazy), I would like to automate this process.

    I am not a programmer. While I can make Excel do lots of things, I am not a programmer. Nor do I pretend to be one.

    So, please post step by step as you would for a noob, using easy to understand language as you would for your grandmother.

    Thanks!

    Hi DM,

    Welcome to the Forum!

    Attach a sample workbook. Make sure there is just enough data to demonstrate your need. Include a BEFORE sheet and an AFTER sheet in the workbook if needed to show the process you're trying to complete or automate. Make sure your desired results are shown, mock them up manually if necessary.

    Remember to desensitize the data.

    Click on GO ADVANCED and use the paperclip icon to open the upload window.
