    How to use '%' in URL in table

    Tanya Ruppell

      Hi - I have a big issue that I thought I had completely resolved, but then I got stuck on not being able to make my URL work. I hope someone here can help!

       

      I have a table where I am trying to display a URL.

       

      This works fine for simple URLs, however the URL I am trying to use has parameters that include coding for special characters, specifically ', : and /, which become %22, %3A and %2F in the URL. For example:

       

      When parameter is 'first/second', the URL needs to be

      http://sample.com/param=first%2Fsecond

       

      The problem is, when I put '%' in the URL string, it displays fine in the table, but the link doesn't even try to open when I click it.

       

      Is there any way around this?

       

      Thank you,

      Tanya
