Show Me: The hyperlinks in my presentation

Problem

What hyperlinks are in this presentation? What slides are they on and what shapes or text are they associated with?

Solution

Run this code to find out:

Sub ShowMeTheHyperlinks()
' Lists the slide number, shape name and address
' of each hyperlink

    Dim oSl As Slide
    Dim oHl As Hyperlink

    For Each oSl In ActivePresentation.Slides
        For Each oHl In oSl.Hyperlinks
            If oHl.Type = msoHyperlinkShape Then
                MsgBox "HYPERLINK IN SHAPE" _
                    & vbCrLf _
                    & "Slide: " & vbTab & oSl.SlideIndex _
                    & vbCrLf _
                    & "Shape: " & oHl.Parent.Parent.Name _
                    & vbCrLf _
                    & "Address:" & vbTab & oHl.Address _
                    & vbCrLf _
                    & "SubAddress:" & vbTab & oHl.SubAddress
            Else
                ' it's text
                MsgBox "HYPERLINK IN TEXT" _
                    & vbCrLf _
                    & "Slide: " & vbTab & oSl.SlideIndex _
                    & vbCrLf _
                    & "Shape: " & oHl.Parent.Parent.Parent.Parent.Name _
                    & vbCrLf _
                    & "Address:" & vbTab & oHl.Address _
                    & vbCrLf _
                    & "SubAddress:" & vbTab & oHl.SubAddress
            End If
        Next    ' hyperlink
    Next    ' Slide

End Sub

Or to get a list off all the hyperlinks in the presentation in a text file:

Option Explicit

Sub FileEmDano()
' Lists the slide number, shape name and address
' of each hyperlink and saves the results to a file:

Dim oSl As Slide
Dim oHl As Hyperlink
Dim sTemp As String
Dim sFileName As String

' Output the results to this file:
sFileName = Environ$("TEMP") & "\" & "HyperlinkList.TXT"

For Each oSl In ActivePresentation.Slides
    For Each oHl In oSl.Hyperlinks
        If oHl.Type = msoHyperlinkShape Then
            sTemp = sTemp & "HYPERLINK IN SHAPE on Slide:" & vbTab & oSl.SlideIndex _
                & vbCrLf _
                & "Shape: " & oHl.Parent.Parent.Name _
                & vbCrLf _
                & "Address:" & vbTab & oHl.Address _
                & vbCrLf _
                & "SubAddress:" & vbTab & oHl.SubAddress & vbCrLf & vbCrLf
        Else
            ' it's text
            sTemp = sTemp & "HYPERLINK IN TEXT on Slide:" & vbTab & oSl.SlideIndex _
                & vbCrLf _
                & "Shape: " & oHl.Parent.Parent.Parent.Parent.Name _
                & vbCrLf _
                & "Address:" & vbTab & oHl.Address _
                & vbCrLf _
                & "SubAddress:" & vbTab & oHl.SubAddress & vbCrLf & vbCrLf
        End If
    Next    ' hyperlink

Next    ' Slide

Call WriteStringToFile(sFileName, sTemp)
Call LaunchFileInNotePad(sFileName)

End Sub

Sub WriteStringToFile(pFileName As String, pString As String)
' Saves the contents of the string pSTring to the file pFileName
    Dim intFileNum As Integer
    intFileNum = FreeFile
                ' change Output to Append if you want to add to an existing file
                ' rather than creating a new file each time
    Open pFileName For Output As intFileNum
    Print #intFileNum, pString
    Close intFileNum

End Sub

Sub LaunchFileInNotePad(pFileName As String)
    Dim lngReturn As Long
    lngReturn = Shell("NOTEPAD.EXE " & pFileName, vbNormalFocus)

End Sub
