Subject: Re: & in URL

Hit send to soon. CMD.exe whiich strpccmd uses, treats the ampersand as the start of a new command. The caret escapes it.

Hi All,

I am having an issue with URL and the &.
I realize this may not be the correct group but thought I would give it a shot.

I have a pgm that displays info about a shipment. On that inquiry I have a function key to send a Shipment Tracking request using the following command.
STRPCCMD 'Start https://www.rlcarriers.com/freight/shipping/shipment-tracing/?pro=12345678&docType=PRO&source=web' Pause(*No)

The issue is when the browser sees the & it ignores the rest of the string. It just looks at
https://www.rlcarriers.com/freight/shipping/shipment-tracing/?pro=12345678 which doesn't find the shipment.
I have tried using &amp;, &#38; and %26 with no help.

I send out shipment tracking emails to the customers with the embed link of https://www.rlcarriers.com/freight/shipping/shipment-tracing/?pro=12345678&amp;docType=PRO&amp;source=web
and this works correctly when they click it.

Any ideas?
