Obtaining a list of all hyperlinks

microsoft-office

Is there some method by which a list of all hyperlinks in a Microsoft Office 2010 Document can be obtained?

I'm trying to check a large number of large documents (a grab bag of Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents) for broken links, and I'd rather not have to read every line of every document to verify that I have a list of all links.

For MS WORD,

 Press Alt + F9 to display the fields

Ctrl + F to open the search box

Search: ^d hyperlink

Check "Highlight all items found ..."

Click on the Find All button

Close the dialog

Ctrl + C to copy everything that is highlighted

Open a new document and paste.

For Excel,

Close all workbooks except the one you want to find the links in.
On the Edit menu, click Find.
Click Options.
In the Find what box, enter [.
In the Within box, click Workbook.
In the Look In box, click Formulas.
Click Find All.
In the box at the bottom, look in the Formula column for formulas that contain [.
To select the cell with a link, select the row in the box at the bottom.
Links are also commonly used in names, text boxes, or chart titles.
