excel vba to embed a hyperlink within a cell based on the cell's value

I would like to embed a hyperlink into a cell where the ending of the cell is part of the link.
ie.

Cell value is [ticket number] the url is "http://server/page.aspx?iid=[ticket number]

i then have a button that copies all cells and pastes them as 'value' and e-mails it to my director.

any help you could provide would be appreciated.

Insert a new module in your workbook and add the following function:

Function CreateHyperlink(URL As String, aCell As Range) As String
  CreateHiperlink = URL + aCell.Text
End Function

In your worksheet, add the following formula in a cell:
=CreateHyperlink("http://server/page.aspx?iid=";A1)

You don't need VBA. Use the HYPERLINK function:

=HYPERLINK("http://server/page.aspx?iid="&A1)

Sorry. Remove Line 10 from the above code.

A caveat: The ticket number has to be in a separate cell.

I would implement it like this:

Put the ticket number in column A. In column B use this formula:

=HYPERLINK("http://server/page.aspx?iid="&A2,A2)

This will create the hyperlink in column B and display the ticket number.

Then hide column A so that only column B is visible as ticket numbers that link to a web page.
