How can I extract URL from hyperlinks?

Occasional Visitor

I have a worksheet where one column contains hyperlinks (like created with =HYPERLINK(link;text)). How can I create a formula extracting link urls from those hyperlinks? I've tried dozen of search queries and carefully read everything found, but couldn't find a way.

  1. Right-click a hyperlink.
  2. From the Context menu, choose Edit Hyperlink. Excel displays the Edit Hyperlink dialog box.
  3. Select and copy (Ctrl+C) the entire URL from the Address field of the dialog box.
  4. Press Esc to close the Edit Hyperlink dialog box.
  5. Paste the URL into any cell desired.
