I have a table with a description, and I would like to hyperlink a word in the description to direct users to download a document. To be clear, this is would not be in a field, as most of the other questions I've seen asking. If anyone could even point me in a good direction I would really appreciate it.

Are you actually asking about if you can put a hyperlink in the name of a table in the table bar across the top?  That is not possible.

No, not in the table name. When you go into the settings or when you initially make the table you have an opportunity to write a description of the table and then chose if it appears on the report page. I'm asking if there's a way to hyperlink a word in that section, not in the table name section.
Are you in fact talking about the description of a Report and not a "Table".

Yes, that's what I'm talking about. It's referred to as a table report on my screen, I just assumed people called it a table. But yes, the report description is what I'm referring to.
No, Sorry, the system does not support html or hyperlinks in the report description.

can you add a static hyperlink as a field? 

yes, you can Make a Rich text field with this format

var text Words = ....

var text URL = URLRoot() & "db/" & [_DBID_PATIENTS] & "?a=dr&rid=" & [Related Patient];


"<a href=" & $URL & ">" & $Words & "</a>"

Basically you just inset the words and insert the URL to hyperlink to when clicked.
