Hey there, I'm just now working on what appears to be a Macbook (never used Macs before) and I'm working on an Excel file for my job that is going to be pretty tedious for me unless I can come up with some form of automation (a macro).
Here's what I have to do. Every hyperlink in this excel file has the wrong address connected to it (don't ask). The basic problem is that every hyperlink goes "http://localhost/microsoft user/folder/file" when they should all be "http://localhost/mac user/folder/file" or something like that.
Now the good part is that I don't have to put the full "http://localhost/mac user/folder/file" because since the Macbook is connected to the server that these links are linking to, I just need to say "folder/file" and the rest behind it is added automatically. THe problem is that I have no way to go to each and every hyperlink and just delete the "http://localhost/microsoft user/" part.
I've tried using the macro recorder, doing this change to a single cell, then running it on other cells, but it doesn't work and I get errors. I have some programming knowledge, so I tried to go into the VB Script editor to edit the macro myself to my liking, but I don't know VB very well and it'd take me a while to learn it, on top of learning Excel's libraries.
So could anyone write up a quick macro for me that will go through every cell with a hyperlink and delete that 'http://localhost/microsoft user/" part of the address or teach me how do it?
