Replace hyperlink

Dear BlueDevilFan,

I hope that you will be able to help with this one as well, when the email is sent out, the text from the notes does this to any email address which is in the text
 HYPERLINK "mailto:ed.macey@iptdesign.co.uk" ed.macey@iptdesign.co.uk
are you able to remedy this as quickly as you did with the line breaks?

Thanks Ed.

Hi, edmacey.

I take it that the link is part of the text in the projectNotes variable.  Is that correct?

no the notes change so it's just every occasion whenever those notes have an email address in, it does that. the notes are for various different tasks.

Ok.  Let me see what I can figure out.

I've thought of a way of fixing this if you can write into the code to delete HYPERLINK and then "this@email.com" then it would get rid of the offending text. Whatever the email address is it is always surrounded by " " so these can be the markers. What do you think?

David LeeCommented:
So look for the second double quote (i.e. ") after HYPERLINK.  Delete from the beginning of HYPERLINK through the double quote, right?

edmaceyAuthor Commented:
yeah exactly that. HYPERLINK "mailto:ed.macey@iptdesign.co.uk" ed.macey@iptdesign.co.uk so that just the second instance of the email address is left, hyperlink and everything contained in the double quotes.

Try this, Ed.  Add it to the code you  already have.  Call the code by changing line #8 from

        mail.HTMLBody = "<font face='arial' colour='#000080' size='2'><p>" & project.Subject & " has been updated. The current notes are:</p><p> " & Replace(projectNotes, vbCrLf, "<br>") & "</p>><p><font size = '1'>V. 1 - /4501/</p>"

to

        mail.HTMLBody = "<font face='arial' colour='#000080' size='2'><p>" & project.Subject & " has been updated. The current notes are:</p><p> " & Replace(RemoveHyperlink(projectNotes), vbCrLf, "<br>") & "</p>><p><font size = '1'>V. 1 - /4501/</p>"


   
Function RemoveHyperlink(strValue As String) As String
    Dim lngPos1 As Long, lngPos2 As Long, strTemp As String
    lngPos1 = InStr(1, strValue, "HYPERLINK")
    If lngPos1 > 0 Then
        lngPos2 = InStr(lngPos1, strValue, Chr(34))
        lngPos2 = InStr(lngPos2 + 1, strValue, Chr(34))
        strTemp = Mid(strValue, lngPos1, (lngPos2 - lngPos1) + 1)
        RemoveHyperlink = Replace(strValue, strTemp, "")
    Else
        RemoveHyperlink = strValue
    End If
End Function
