I've also had this as an issue in the past. Did you generate the PDF via
Acrobat or did you print to PDF? I believe the issue is sometimes (but not
always!) fixed by using the Acrobat ribbon "Create PDF" button. You could
always rename the path/file to remove the #?

I have a minor but annoying problem with hyperlinks in PDFs generated from Word
If the hyperlink contains a hash character (#), the hash is converted to '%23'
- presumably the ASCII code for a hash character - during the PDF generation
process. The link in the finished PDF is broken.
It's relatively easy to post-edit the PDF but it would be good to stop it
happening in the first place.
Does anyone know of a fix for this?
