If your text block is in a shape you can do this:

Dim intStart As Integer
Dim intEnd As Integer
Dim strText As String
strText = Sheets("NameOfMySheet").Shapes("Name of my shape").TextFrame.Characters.Text
intStart = InStr(1, strText, "http://")
intEnd = InStr(intStart, strText, " ")

MsgBox Mid$(strText, intStart, intEnd - intStart)
