Change a word bookmark by an hyperlink

Hi, I am pretty new in powershell scripting so I am asking for your help.

I created a simple word file in path c:\tmp\test.rtf
Inside this file, I created a bookmark name link.

With this code I change the bookmark by my email address:

$MSWord = New-Object -com word.application
$objDoc = $MSWord.Documents.Open('c:\tmp\test.rtf')
$MSWord.Visible = $true
$email= "my@email.com"
($MSWord.ActiveDocument.Bookmarks.Item("link")).Select()
$MSWord.Selection.text = $email

With that code I can add an hyperlink to my test.rtf file:

$MSWord = New-Object -com Word.Application
$objDoc = $MSWord.Documents.Open('c:\tmp\test.rtf')
$MSWord.Visible = $true
$objRange = $objDoc.Range()
$email= "my@email.com"
$objLink = $objDoc.HyperLinks.Add($objRange, $email,$null,$null,$email)

Here what I am looking for:
I want to replace my bookmark by an hyperlink and I did not succeed in mixing those two script.

Your help would really be appreciated.

I don't know Powershell, but this is an attempt to translate from the way that it could be done in VBA
$MSWord = New-Object -com Word.Application
$objDoc = $MSWord.Documents.Open('c:\tmp\test.rtf')
$MSWord.Visible = $true
$objRange = $objDoc.Bookmarks.Item("link")).Range
$email= "my@email.com"
$objLink = $objDoc.HyperLinks.Add($objRange, $email,$null,$null,$email)

It worked!

Only thing i needed to add was in line 6:
$objLink = $objDoc.HyperLinks.Add($objRange, “mailto:” + $email,$null,$null,$email)
That way the email link to my email address and not to a local file.

Thank you very much for your help!
