Excel - Retrieve data selectively from cells


I have an Excel spreadsheet that contains around 1500 html links.

Is there a way to automate this process with a macro?


Suppose the hyperlink is in A1 in c1 (or any other cell in row 1)
  • Use this formula:
  • =RIGHT(A1,LEN(A1)-21)
  • So, suppose other hyperlinks are in A2, A3... etc and copy formula down.

Note that
