Extract hyperlink from Open Office Calc Sheet

I have an Open Office Calc Sheet with a column full of data that has hyperlinks. I wish to trasnfer the hyperlinks to another column. How do I extract them?

Thanks.,.

I had the same issue. I found this: Introspective cell functions

Go to Tools->Macro->Organize Macros->Open/Libre Office Basic from the sheet you're working on, create a new Macro. You'll see a new window opening. Copy paste the code from the URL I linked:

Save it. You can now use the function CELL_URL(1;row;column) which will put in the working cell the url hyperlinked in the cell positioned at (row, column).
