Right you are. It "changed" somehow... anyhow, even if you change it, it  
will choke on the same line. I received an answer... a workaround which  
doesn't make me happy, but it is, as it is!

This is not a bug. This is by design. pyExcelerator does not
unerstand such syntax. Try Formula("HYPERLINK(address; name)")

Which means:

ws_summary.write(0,0, pyExcelerator.Formula('HYPERLINK("Data!A1"))

does the trick, but the text shown is a hyperlink now!

Thanks for your help,
