Not able to Access Documents in an Exported Vault Report in Microsoft Excel by Clicking the Associated Hyperlink.
Some of the hyperlinks in an exported report point to an incorrect web address due to Microsoft Excel changing the format of some hyperlinks that contain the # character.
This is an intermittent issue that normally affects one or two users at a time. It is not a Vault issue.

- Microsoft Office documentation: You cannot use a pound character in a file name for a hyperlink in an Office program
