i am trying to change too change this url
book.asp?SC=ABC5027#offer&rmid=SurvivalGuideE4&rrid=237952859
to move the anchor tag to the end.... like:
book.asp?SC=ABC5027&rmid=SurvivalGuideE4&rrid=237952859#offer

the rule we're trying is seems to test ok, but doesnt work in practice

     <rule name="Responsys#">
<match url="(.*landing/.*)#(.*?)&amp;(.+)" />
<conditions logicalGrouping="MatchAll" trackAllCaptures="false" />
<action type="Rewrite" url="{R:1}&amp;{R:3}#{R:2}" appendQueryString="false" logRewrittenUrl="false" />
         </rule>

The URL in the form

book.asp?SC=ABC5027#offer&rmid=SurvivalGuideE4&rrid=237952859

is not valid in that the rmid and rrid elements are just part of the # fragment.

e.g.

php -r "var_dump(parse_url('book.asp?SC=ABC5027#offer&rmid=SurvivalGuideE4&rrid=237952859'));"
array(3) {
  ["path"]=>
  string(8) "book.asp"
  ["query"]=>
  string(10) "SC=ABC5027"
  ["fragment"]=>
  string(41) "offer&rmid=SurvivalGuideE4&rrid=237952859"
}

What is generating it?

So, the part of the query that IIS will get to play with is ...

book.asp?SC=ABC5027

If you set the appendQueryString option, it will just append it again.

Also, you are requiring the URL to contain landing/

Something that the url you've supplied doesn't contain.

I'm using IIS7.

Below is a screen shot ...

What is generating the URL?

Is it an AJAX call and are you just appending the values without splitting out the #fragment?

I don't think you need to escape &, so & and not &amp;

I'll take a look when I get back in the office on Tuesday. No IIS available from home.

it looks like the rewrite module stops at the # sign......   we gave up on that approach and used some redirect code instead...
