combining #encrypt()# and #urlencodeformat()# results in error

i have a query in which the unique identifier is the employee id, to try to hide the emp id i tried

#encrypt(EMPID,DYNAMIC_SEED)#
and resulted in

!#0#&
 
but the resulting value has to be url compatible, the & kills it,  so i tried

#urlencodeformat(encrypt(EMPID,DYNAMIC_SEED))#

which does not work i get an error on output, one of those contact admin, but doesn't give error details

i tried using evaluate on the result but get an error on the !.

so i need a method of converting the encrypted vale to a url compatible value OR an encryption method that will result in a url compatible value
