I am trying to add a hyperlink to a text box in PowerPoint

Resolved Question:

I am trying to add a hyperlink to a text box in PowerPoint 2010 that opens an Excel workbook to a specific sheet and cell. I am using the "Add Hyperlink" menu and linking to the file (its in the same directory as the pptx) using the following format: AustinChalk_MudLog_Index.xlsx#'Area3'!A200. This works perfectly until I save and close the pptx. When I reopen it, the link is still there but does not include the "#'Area3'!A200" part so the workbook will open, but not to the cell that I want it too. How do it get PowerPoint to keep the link in full?
