I have a table full of Hyperlinked text in excel, so it's basically a bunch of names but when I click on one, it takes me to some URL in my default browser.
So I am extracting text from this excel table in my program, but the value I get when I extract from these hyperlink cells is that of the string inside, when I want the URL the string is linked to in the excel file.
So I'm thinking there are two ways to do this. Either I can convert all the hyperlinked text in the excel file to the corresponding URLs, or I can use C# to somehow extract the URL value from the cell and not the text.
I don't know how to do either of these things, but any help would be greatly appreciated.
C# code so far:
Excel.ApplicationClass excelApp = new Excel.ApplicationClass();
//excelApp.Visible = true;
Excel.Workbook excelWorkbook =
0, false, 5, "", "",false, Excel.XlPlatform.xlWindows, "",
true, false, 0, true, false, false);
Excel.Sheets excelSheets = excelWorkbook.Worksheets;
string currentSheet = "Sheet1";
Excel.Worksheet xlws = (Excel.Worksheet)excelSheets.get_Item(currentSheet);
string myString = ((Excel.Range)xlws.Cells[2, 1]).Value.ToString();
You could use a vba macro:
Hit Alt+F11 to open the VBA editor and paste in the following:
Function URL(rg As Range) As String Dim Hyper As Hyperlink Set Hyper = rg.Hyperlinks.Item(1) URL = Hyper.Address End Function
And then you can use it in your Worksheet, like this:
