(http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=fh;en-us;cntactms)To work around this behavior, use a macro to select all the cells that contain hyperlinks.
Other Macros to Work with HyperlinksYou can use a Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications subroutine to cycle through all of the hyperlinks within a worksheet and perform a specific operation on each hyperlink. For example, you can delete all of the hyperlinks, or you can simply report the location of each hyperlink.
NOTE: Some lines of code have been modified with line continuation characters (_) to fit this document.
The DeleteAllHyperlinks() macro deletes the hyperlink property of the range, but not the hyperlink text. It leaves behind the hyperlink text.
For more information about hyperlinks, in the Visual Basic Editor, click Microsoft Visual Basic Help on the Help menu, type hyperlink object in the Office Assistant or the Answer Wizard, and then click Search to view the topic.
