Open office extract URL from hyperlinks - in the adjacent cell

I have a column peppered with hyperlinks.

I need to extract the hyperlinks from each cell in my .ods spreadsheet.  

I need them to appear in the cell they exist in , or to the cell to the right.


You can see by checking the Image column, I need the URL's from the hyperlinks.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

We can take the Macro from your earlier questions (http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Office_Productivity/Office_Suites/Star_OpenOffice/StarOffice_Calc/Q_26374214.html) and modify it to just replace the current cell with the text from the link.  Just update the Macro with the one below.  This will not longer prompt for a sheet to enter, but instead will just update any hyperlink on the current sheet.  I noticed you posted an .xls file but asked in OpenOffice.  This macro is for OpenOffice.  If you need an Excel macro, you will need to let us know that.
