I had to come up with this for a document that had something like 100+ Hyperlinks.
- In Word, click to Tools > Macro > Visual Basic Editor (or press F11)
- Right-click the Normal icon to make changes to the global Normal.dot template, then select Insert > Module
- Paste the code below into the text box. Click File > Save Normal. Alternately, you can save this macro in a template of your choice
Sub RemoveAllHyperlinks( )
Dim i As Integer
For i = ActiveDocument.Hyperlinks.Count To 1 Step -1
Run this macro in Word from the Tools > Macro > Macros dialog.
This just works wonders when in need.
