Here's a simple function:
Public Function GetHyper(rng As Range) As String
    GetHyper = rng.Hyperlinks(1).Address
End Function

Open in new window


It does not return the "file:///" part, but will show the full filepath (E:\My Document\MyPhoto.jpg)

Regards,

I saw that also.  But when I created a couple of new hyperlinks (to local documents on my hard drive) the full path displayed properly.  I just presumed it was an artifact of the file being saved here on EE.
