Bidshelper from Codeplex was installed on the BI Server to be able to add URL's as action items.
The environment was SQL Server 2012 SP1 Enterprise Edition. The URL worked fine when clicking on it and the Web URl opened up correctly.
One of the Url's contained a # character which worked correctly.
When clicking on the action item link in excel it went went to the URL using Internet Explorer.
After installing SQL 2012 SP 1 Cumulative Update 6 to be able to use he IsEmpty function in Dax the # URL stopped working.
When clicking on the action item it gave the following error - windows cannot find 'https://www.google.co.za/-q=%2__
It seems to ignore the # character completely. I tried to use URL encoding which is %23 for # but this did not work.
It seems like after installing the Cumulative Update this specific URL stopped working.
The other URL's are still working correctly.
Could you please be of assistancce in this matter. The project is about to go into production and the URL's need to work.
