Thanks for the reply Mike.

What I had intended to do, was to have a "Please Wait" screen appear
between a Submit Page and a Show Results page.
And the way I was doing this was, from the Submit Page, I'm passed the Show
Results page's URL, and the call my Please Wait screen.
Once the Please Wait screen was written, the last step was a JavaScript
forward to call the Show Results page.
So, instead of defining every possible parm, I simply used the
QUERY_STRING, and appended it to the passed URL,
      thus getting a    parent.location = "$(URL)?$(QUERY_STRING)"  script.
And it works quit well, except for when certain characters are passed
within the Query String, like in this case a slash "/".

So, after much searching for an answer, I simply took the less popular
path, and ended up defining every possible parm, in a form, and
had a JavaScript, submit it when I needed to.  Yippee.

Thanks, again Mike

Dave,

I'm not too sure, but it looks like QUERY_STRING has been escaped (the "/"
has been translated to a more friendly "%61").  But when you refer to
variable $(a) explicitly, it unescapes it.

Just curious, why are you using the QUERY_STRING anyway?  It may prove to
be problematic for you, as Net.Data does not appear to give you a way to
unescape a string.

Mike E.






  OK, here's the situation. Actually, let me simply show you the code.


  %DEFINE QUERY_STRING = %ENVVAR


  step 1---> $(a) <---

  step 2---> @callcgipgm() <---

  step 3---> $(QUERY_STRING) <---


  OK. Now, what I'm trying to determine is when I pass a value in parameter
"a" of "d/d", my
  results in steps 1 and 2 come up correct, "d/d". But, when step 3 occurs
my result is "d%61d".
  Now, I've scene examples that show that this doesn't have to happen.


  What I was hoping for was for someone to tell me shy it is happening.


  Thanks alot in advance.

  dav
