I'm sorry nobody responded earlier. I'm going through my list of flagged posts and realize I menat to keep a closer eye on this one, but it fell through the cracks.
I believe this is a known bug, and if anything would work, it would be exporting the affected documents to .idml, but my memory is that it probably won't help. Have you patched to 7.5.2?

Hi Peter thank you for the reply. I agree that this is a bug I spend hours on the phone with Adobe until I was able to prove to them it is a bug. I did find a work around that works for now but helpfully they resolve this soon. For our case creating the hyperlinks on the textbox instead of the text with in the text box resolved this. Normally I select the text that I want to be a hyperlink and then right click and create the hyperlink. I found that if I just select the text box and right click to create the hyperlink they then work on all pages. This probably wouldn't be pretty in some cases but in my case I had hyperlinks on textboxes with one word in them.
Glad you were able to find a workaround (saw it in another thread a few minutes ago, too) and that you posted it for others with the same problem. Hopefully this will eventually get fixed.
Can you recommendd the best way to manage the following:
I'm on a Mac. Created an enewsletter for a client in Indesign CS5 with 7 "click here"s throughout the document. The hyperlinks are to connect w other PDF documents not URLs.
Where will I have the best luck creating the hyperlinks - Indesign or in the PDF I export? I have Acrobat Pro if I need to create the hyperlinks in the PDF.
Except I can't figure out how to create the links in either program as far as what name to designate and where do the PDFs reside so people can link to them? And do I enter the file name of the PDF connected to the particular "click here."
Next time please start a new thread for an unrelated topic like this. I don't do this sort of work in my regular workflow, but as a general principle I'm fairly sure you need to put your destination PDFs on the server first, then add the links to those locations in order for your readers to be able to access them.
Thanks. and sorry for posting in the wrong place.
