Do you create worksheets by pasting information that was copied from the Internet? This is not unusual for some people, as there is quite a bit of public-domain information that can be copied from the Internet. When you paste your information into a worksheet, you may notice that there are quite a few hyperlinks. What if you want to get rid of those hyperlinks? Similarly, you might inherit a worksheet from someone, and it contains a lot of hyperlinks you want deleted.
