When I walked into a building I was wearing red socks. When I walked out, my hair had changed colour. What on earth could have happened?

Isn't # also called the pound sign (in the US)? Maybe the database got confused..
Guess Michel is right then in assuming it's a Locale setting

My reply implies that you gave next to no information other than saying "Something happened that I didn't want, what has gone wrong"
Although it is likely that Michel's reply will point you towards the likely problem, it is also possible that something in your code is causing the issue. we can't tell because you gave no information
