Pretty simple stuff.  I just don't see the problem.  If I remove all ScanLastName code it works (remove spaces).

        var scandoc = '';
      var ScanDoc1 = '';
      var ScanDocFileName = '';
      var ScanLastName = "212227_O'Connell".replace(/'/g, '');
      var TheDivToRefresh = '';

function btnScan_onclick(divToRefresh)
{
    ScanDoc1 = $('input.scandocument').val();
    ScanDoc = ScanDoc1.replace(/\s/g, '');
    ScanDocFileName = ScanDoc+ScanLastName;
}

Escape your filename :
function btnScan_onclick(divToRefresh)
{
    ScanDoc1 = $('input.scandocument').val();
    ScanDoc = ScanDoc1.replace(/\s/g, '');
    ScanDocFileName = escape(ScanDoc+ScanLastName);
}

I get btnScan_0nclick is undefined.  If I remove all ScanLastName code it works fine.

It was caused by another statement;

$("div.filenameClass").html("The file name will be:   '+str+'_#indivnum#_#lastname#.pdf');

I had to change the escape apostrophes with quotes.  The pound signs are Coldfusion variables. The new statement is;

$("div.filenameClass").html("The file name will be:   "+str+"_#indivnum#_#lastname#.pdf".replace(/'/g, ''));
