                    row+=1
base.save('project2.xls')
How to&Answers:

You need to make the text a part of a Formula, & would help with concatenation. Example:

import xlwt

wb = xlwt.Workbook()
ws = wb.add_sheet('test')

ws.write(0, 0, xlwt.Formula('"test " & HYPERLINK("http://google.com")'))

wb.save('test.xls')
