Find documents containing hyperlinks




I would like to be able to run a search over multiple documents (i.e., all
docs within a folder) to determine which ones contain hyperlinks. I don't
need to replace or turn them off; I would only like a list of which docs
contain hyperlinks--even if the links are within the same document. Of
course, I don't want to have to open the docs. Possible?

Many thanks...

batch of documents in the same folder†at:

Ah! That's it! Thank you, Doug. Your answer reminds me that I had this
issue before when I first started work at my job, but I had forgotten what
the exact problem was, not to mention the solution (that whole first month is
a fog to me). Now I remember making use of the link you provided. Thanks,
