Web links disappear when PDF created from Excel Spreadsheet

I have built a report in Excel. The report includes a set of web links. I used the following formula to create a link and the link works perfectly in Excel. However, when I convert the Excel report to PDF, the link doesn't work. Any suggestions?

=IF(OR(O204="Blind Spot", I204<4), HYPERLINK("website url", "Dev Link"),"")

I've not had this problem when I've embedded links in a Word doc and then converted to PDF. Any suggestions on how to keep those active?

They are preserved for me printing via Acrobat.

Mine don't, even when I do a "Print as PDF."

I wonder if it is because the link is based upon a conditional statement and has a "label" rather than the full URL?

They don't work using Print as PDF for me either. They do using Acrobat with the option ticked to Add Links.

Ah -- they don't work using Acrobat either when I use the Friendly_name argument.
