I'm getting the following to work, with the exception that there are "&"
shown in place of the blanks. The .pdf is N/F without the '-', and if
I use the '-' for the displayed name, it still wraps. SO CLOSE!!

select translate(trim(SEARCH),'%20','-') as URLNAME,
translate(trim(SEARCH),' ',' ') as ...

Badger&Rubber&Company&10450&&52499.pdf
Bonde'&Quik&Mart&40487&29814.pdf
LTI&Flexible&Products&13070&0038727IN.pdf

OK, I'm not familiar with Net.Data. Are you performing a SQL query? You
can pull the search name twice: once for the %20 replacement, and again
for the  .

Untested SQL: select translate(trim(myname),'%20',' ') as uriname,
translate(trim(myname),' ',' ') as readablename ...

I know it's bad form to integrate style and content, but if this a
purpose-built page intended for web browser consumption, it should be
ok.

Thanks,
Loyd

I am using a variable?

<a href="J:\$(V_SEARCH)">$(V_SEARCH)</a>

Convert spaces " " to "%20" (no quotes) in the <a href>. %20 is the URI
equivalent for space. If the visible name of the link is breaking across
lines, that can be solved by replacing spaces with "&nbsp;" non-breaking
space.
