I have cells which contain a hyperlink which i have now given a friendly name.

Before i had a VBA that would check the hyperlink as a path and depending on its return format that cell. Now the VBA wont work as the friendly name is part of that string.

I have multiple cells with variable length friendly names so i can't just exclude a certain number of characters.

Is there a way to either reference the hyperlink path or copy the hyperlink to another cell and just return its path ?

Hyperlink Formula : =HYPERLINK(CONCATENATE(".\..\B. Target Documentation\",$B2,"\01_Reports\","E050048","-TRR-",$Z2,"-",TEXT(AH2,"yymmdd"),"-",$B2,".pdf"), $B2&" TRR")

Check hyperlink VBA :

VBA Code:
Public Sub CheckHyperlink()

Dim strLink As String
Dim rCell As Range
Dim rRng As Range
Dim LR As Integer
Dim LastTarget As Range
Dim File As String
Dim File2 As String

Application.ScreenUpdating = False

FirstColumn
LastColumn

Worksheets("ListOfPoints").Activate

Range(FirstColNr & "2").Select
Set LastTarget = Selection.End(xlDown).End(xlDown).End(xlUp)
LR = LastTarget.Row
Set rRng = Sheets("ListOfPoints").Range(FirstColNr & "2:" & LastColNr & LR)
'Set rRng = Sheets("ListOfPoints").Range("AL2:AQ3")
    For Each rCell In rRng.Cells
        rCell.Select
        'Selection.Hyperlinks.Add Anchor:=Selection, Address:=Selection
        strLink = ThisWorkbook.Path & rCell.Text
        If Dir(strLink) <> vbNullString Then
        Selection.Font.Color = vbBlue
        'File = Dir(strLink)
        'MsgBox File
        ElseIf Dir(strLink, vbDirectory) <> vbNullString Then
        Selection.Font.Color = vbBlue
        Else
        Selection.Font.Color = vbRed
        End If
    Next rCell
    
Range(FirstColNr & "2").Select
    
Application.ScreenUpdating = True

End Sub

Does the VLOOKUP table have to be sorted?
No! when you are using an exact match, the VLOOKUP table can be in any order. Best-selling items at the top is actually the best.
