    Passing mulitple values via MagicCell [again]


    People,

    I've got a frstrating problem when passing values from one page to another via magic cell and HREF. I can pass most values fine, but am having difficulties when the field value contains a plus sign '+'

    In ALL cases when this occurs, the '+' is omitted from the end result when it is actually part of the passed field value. I need this value and cannot substitute it with another. the recieving page simply drops the value and replaces it with a space.

    Is there any way this can be protected and passed as designed without being interpreted otherwise ? Is there a problem with passing special characters as part of a field value ? How can I do this otherwise ?

    Many thanks,

    Tim

    Hi Tim,

    Are you doing a "URLEncode" with your MagicCell?
    This is an optional feature of MagicCell.
    Maybe that's all you need to do.

    Mark and Frank,

    Here is the resulting URL:
    http://127.0.0.1/asp_rules_distinct_head.asp?Months=NA&Type=SEQ&Rul e_Head=AA_NEG+AXP_NEG&Table=TWODAY_RESULTS_DJIA_SE Q

    However the REQUEST variable "RULE_HEAD" becomes "AA_NEG AXP_NEG" where it is missing the "+". This results form the following MAGICCELL code:

    mcell = mcell & &#34;Months, Align=right,<A HREF= asp_rules_distinct_head.asp?Months=#1#&Type=&#34; & Type1 & &#34;&Rule_Head=&#34; & Head & &#34;&Table=&#34; & Name & &#34;><FONT COLOR=green><B>#1#</B></FONT></A>;&#34;

    Any ideas on how to fix this ?

    Many thanks,

    Tim
