Hi,
I have a link to a file that is not opening.  I found the URLEncode function might work.  
However, I've tried several different ways and am not sure if it can be used in a link for a file, because in between different variables there are spaces.  I need to know how I can set the URLEncode function, if I'm doing something wrong.
This is what should be included:

<cfloop list="#qGetData.file#"  index="i"   >
                   
<a href="http://server:8001/obi/Path-MA/Attachments_Directory/Marketing/#qGetData.group_Name# ID #url.id# (By #qGetData.submitted_By#) - #DateFormat(qGetData.date_Submitted, 'mmddyyyy')#/#i#")>#i#</a><br/>      
</cfloop>

Variables like group_Name may have spaces, but the path itself does have spaces.  How to go about this?

Did you read the answers on your other thread? You were already given the answer to this question:  URLEncode _only_ the portion of the path with spaces.
