    Default # sign in hyperlinks

     
    I am trying to hyperlink to files in my Matlab generated excel sheet.

    Unfortunately many of the folder names holding those files have a name including a "#" sign. What I can see is that Excel uses this sign for other purposes, which may cause this problem.

    A typical hyperlink look likes this:

    =HYPERLINK("\\xx.xxx.x.x\folder1\folder2\folder3\folder4\2017-11-03_#3378\AD_REG_20171103_094649_1_0000001351_cam5.mp4";"cam5")

    Is there any way to solve this. Changing the folder names are not an option.

    BR

    Welcome to the forum.

    I think this should work:

    =HYPERLINK("File:///\\xx.xxx.x.x\folder1\folder2\folder3\folder4\2017-11-03_%233378\AD_REG_20171103_094649_1_0000001351_cam5.mp4";"cam5")

    adding File:/// to the start and using %23 instead of the # symbol.
