added a form to a webpage (.asp page) and populated some
elements of the form with data extracted from a database.
The problem was that spaces in the database records being
added to the form were causing posting problems. In other
words when the form was posted it would post the space as a
%20. This is the Unicode Expression for a space. In some
cases this may not matter but in this particular case I
needed it to be an ASCII character, not Unicode.
Well there may be other ways
to solve this problem and if your database has thousands of
records this may not be the solution but here it is for what
it's worth and I hope it helps...
simple, you just replace the spaces in the database with an
ASCII space. The way to do this is to highlight the space in
the database record, then hold the <Alt> key and press
0160 on the numeric keypad. What this does is simply replace
the space with an ASCII character.
when the database records are extracted to the form and the
form is posted, voila, you have a "normal space".
Hope this helps, if you find or know of other ways to do the
same thing please let me know... firstname.lastname@example.org
