Author Posts 04/24/2017 at 6:00 pm #10678 Wendy SnyderParticipant Greetings everyone, I have an upload page that contains two HTTP parameters, used to populate metadata in the document library: https://mysite.com/SitePages/RL_Upload.aspx?RLID=<%ID%>&RID=<%RID%> RLID is always numeric, so there is no issue. RID is a text field. When the value of RID contains an ampersand (&), the value is truncated since (I assume) SharePoint thinks the & is the start of another HTTP parameter. For example, if RID = Q&A, the value that’s loaded into the library is Q. Is there a way to configure <%RID%> so that the entire value including the &, (for example, Q&A), comes through? Thank you. 05/03/2017 at 9:36 am #10680 Rachit VyasParticipant Hi Wendy, “&” is a reserved character which is used for the reserved purpose in the URL. You cannot use these character in the URL directly as a value. You can use these type of characters by their respective encoded value only. For “&” url-uncode value is “%26” (ref: http://www.eso.org/~ndelmott/url_encode.html). Thanks, Rachit Author Posts You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
