Stripping out Hyperlinks in VBA

If I don’t document this here, it might not be anywhere. I searched for ages for a solution to this and could not find one anywhere, so I wrote this recursive function which takes care of the first part of the hyperlink and then enables me to just use Replace to get rid of the last tag. My sole contribution to the sum total of VBA programming out there.

strText = stripHyperlink(strText)
strText = Replace(strText, "</A>", "")
strText = Replace(strText, "</a>", "")
Function stripHyperlink(strSource)
' find first position of <A HREF tag

p1 = InStr(1, UCase(strSource), "<A HREF")

If p1 = 0 Then
	stripHyperlink = strSource
	Exit Function
End If

If p1 > 1 Then	strLeft = Left(strSource, p1 - 1)
	p2 = InStr(p1 + 1, UCase(strSource), ">")
	strRight = Mid(strSource, p2 + 1)
	strSource = strLeft & " " & strRight
	ans = stripHyperlink(strSource) ' recurse

Else	p2 = InStr(p1 + 1, UCase(strSource), ">")
	strSource = Mid(strSource, p2 + 1)
	ans = stripHyperlink(strSource)

End If
stripHyperlink = strSource

End Function
