Special Characters

Jun 3, 2013 at 12:32 PM
I have a few fields where the "#" sign may be used and when I use SPFF, the target page doesn't include anything in the new page's prefilled information after the "#" sign. This also happens with the "&" symbol; however, that seems logical to me since it's used to break apart the fields in the URL.

Is there any way around the "#" sign issue - or - will my users have to replace the "#" sign with another character.

Thanks!

Dave,

The "#" usually signifies a bookmark in a URL. Since it's used by the url to signify a position on the page, it can't safely be used as data.

Thanks,
Paul
