Edit multiple hyperlinks in Excel 2013

Last Modified: 2015-04-07
I need to change many hyperlinks on an excel spreadsheet to point to a new location. I want to keep the filename the same, just change the network path. I've tried a few different scripts with no success.

This doesn't work:

Sub FixHyperlinks()
    Dim wks As Worksheet
    Dim hl As Hyperlink
    Dim sOld As String
    Dim sNew As String

    Set wks = ActiveSheet
    sOld = "\\servera\2014\DC1\CDP\Archive_Target\Denise's Files\Residential Work Orders\"
    sNew = "\\NEWSERVER\SharedData\Location\Residential Maintenance\Denise's Files\Residential Work Orders\"
    For Each hl In wks.Hyperlinks
        hl.Address = Replace(hl.Address, sOld, sNew)
    Next hl
End Sub

Please advise.
