How to Execute Add-MailboxFolderPermission Command with Spaces in Folder name

Add-MailboxFolderPermission -Identity "User1@xyz.org:\Inbox\AHA Class Reports" -User User2@xyz.org -AccessRights PublishingEditor

I get an error when I try this command. Path not found. Because there are spaces in the folder name.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Just put double quotes around the last part where the folder name has spaces...

User1@xyz.org:\"Inbox\AHA Class Reports"

That should work.
