Im trying to change a variable to look for a directory where the folder contains the # symbol. Microstation does not like this. I believe # creates a new line? Is there a way I can reference the directory without having rename it?
# is used to comment a line/config variable in the configuration files.
Are you looking to change the variable inside MicroStation?. Manually or through programming.
Some samples, snapshots will help us better understand your requirement.
Im just trying to change the variable MS_RFDIR manually but the directory I need to point to contains # symbol. Unfortunately I can't rename the directory in windows.

Can you assign a drive letter, or some other Windows alias to that folder?

I'm afraid not.
Put it in quotes (I haven’t tested this my self):
MS_RFDIR > "\\server\share\test#dir\"
