Filenames With "%" Characters
Created by Anonymous on 07/14/2005. Modified: 07/14/2005 16:12
HTTP Web Server: Item Not Found Exception
I access as an user a Domino-based web, can make attachments, but if I
attach a file with filename containing the "%" character (or anybody
else do it) I can´t download it (eg. file%20name), I get a "HTTP Web
Server: Item Not Found Exception" even if I edit the filename URL to use
%25 instead of "%" character.
Do you know if Lotus Domino has an internal ID for the file that can
be used to retrieve the file without using the filename? (to avoid
Any help woud be appreciated.

It seems to be a browser problem which occurs when a file name is typed with spaces.
eg. file name 20
IE by default defines the space as % which might give problems while accessing such files.
Solution is to type the names with characters within the name and avoid leaving space in the name.
eg. file-name-20 or file_name_20
This will open the exact attachment and will not show the percentage error message.
