Are you sure you want to hyperlink not "join" the data using a common attribute? –  GIS-Jonathan May 3 '12 at 10:57

Welcome to GIS.stackexchange. Please be more specific as to what you are trying to achieve. So far it is not clear. –  underdark May 3 '12 at 10:57

I'm an ESRI user, and I don't use QGIS (yet), but I found a tutorial on conducting a TABLE JOIN with a quick Google search. Your question is a little unclear, but it sounds very much like you're looking to join external data to your existing spatial database. If not, please clarify your question a little and I'm sure someone on this site will be able to assist you. Also, I see that you're new, so welcome to GIS SE.

Take care & hope this helps
