& Problem

8 posts in this topic

When I do like..

$DownloadURL = "BlahBlah&BlahBlah&Blah"

It removes the & from it.

Anyone know how to fix this?

Well I used a inputbox to see if it was putting the & and they weren't there but I was using a run command to open internet explorer.

The $Download was just a example. X.X

Well I see them perfectly.

$DownloadURL = "BlahBlah&BlahBlah&Blah"

MsgBox(0,"",$DownloadURL)

What does entering &s in a command line do?

like cmd /c start http:\\bored.com\search?sort=s&etc...

If that's supposed to be a web address, your slashes are backwards. Probably doesn't solve your issue, just an observation.

In the command shell the ampersand redirects the STDOUT and/or STDERR streams. For example "2>&1" redirects STDERR to STDOUT.

It's a special character, so if you want it to be part of a parameter, put it inside double quotes.
