     I don't know how well acquainted you are with HTML and links
contained in this mark-up language. You see the name of the link which
can be a single or a few words. When you place the cursor over the link,
the full link is exposed either as a pop-up or listed somewhere in the
window containing the document.
     Links in Calc are done the same way. You use the Hyperlink bar to
do this. (This is located between the Restore and Sort Ascending icons.
It looks like a globe with a link on it.)
     Help tells how to modify the name of a link. links: editing
hyperlinks) Here is my interpretation of that:
1. Click the cell containing the link.
2. Click the Hyperlink Bar icon.
3. Edit the name of the link, but do not change the URL of the link.
4. Click Accept.
