First, create a textbox. In the properties, click the link button. Enter the URL and the text you want to be linked. Once you've done this, the link will turn a god awful color. You can then highlight the link and turn the font color to whatever works for your report. Sometimes this is finicky, so if changing the color doesn't work, delete the link, hit backspace until there's no more formatting, and then try again.
