As far as I can see you are trying to hide the HyperLink
control and display the Label.
In this case you could simply find both control and switch the their Visiblity. Also I notice that you changing the cell Text property. Note that in this case the text will be display in the exported document and the controls will be cleared. Nevertheless in both cases you will not be able to redirect by using the links.
