Use workflow to set relative hyperlink

When an item is created in List A, I would like a column in that list to be set to contain a relative hyperlink to a page in the same site. Every entry in List A would have a link to the same page.

I've tried creating a text field called Link and using a workflow to set its value to the URL, and the value is indeed copied to the field, but its not operating as  a hyperlink.  If I make the Link column a hyperlink column, I cannot get the workflow to populate both the URL and description.  

Any suggestions?
