If users upload a file to our Web-based intranet and the name of the file contains spaces, users cannot open the file on the Web. I have to detach the file in my Notes client and resubmit it. Is there a way of getting round this?
For example: "domino code.doc" causes an error and "domino_code.doc" does not cause an error.
Usually MS Internet Explorer handles these file names OK, while older Netscape browsers don't. I suggest computing the "download file" link similar to this:
"a href=/path/yourDB.nsf/ViewByID/" +@Text(@DocumentUniqueID)+ "/$FILE/" + @ReplaceSubstring(filename;" ";"%20") + "?OpenElement "+ "" target = "_new">"+filename+"</</a>]"Where filename is the name of the file. You can get this using @Attachmentnames.
