I have an excel sheet with the below headings:
ID, Name, Link, Result

I have created a hyperlink in the column 'Link'. There are about 50 entrys at the moment. Some of these links are no longer valid. I wanted a function to run through the list and if the hyperlink is no longer available to put a 'n'o in the result column and 'yes' if it works.

I have been looking for code to validat hyperlinks but cannot find anything. Any help is appreciated

Hi j8547,

If your hyperlinks are to local files, not web pages, you can use the UDF I posted in this question -> http:/Q_21649931.html
