How do I set the address of a Hyperlink variable?

Dim strUrl As String
Dim hyper_Url As Hyperlink

'Start URL
strUrl = "

hyper_Url.Address = strUrl   '<------ this line errors out

What I'm trying to do
Build a URL for Google Maps direction.

The Whys
I can load the URL as a string in a browser, but when I try to send it in an email the email recognizes the first part of the URL and not the addresses I add.  So the user clicks on the URL in the email and doesn't get the map.  My thought is that if I had a Hyperlink variable to the email, it will work.

Thanks in advance for any help.
