> It appears that spaces in file names produces different behavior depending

> It boils down to this:
> FMP Field Definition: Alpha Beta
> Alpha Beta Field Value: John Smith
> Browser POST: Alpha_Beta (Apache Server replaces space with
> FMP FIND URL: Alpha+Beta (FX (?) replaces space with "+" in URL)
> FMP SORT FIELD URL: Alpha%20Beta (FX (?) replaces space with "%20" in
> Here's an actual URL that shows the existence of both methods in the same
> The html form displays the field name with the space.
> Apache POST replaces the space with an underline.
> FX/PHP replaces the space in a FIELD NAMEwith a "+"
> FX/PHP replaces the space in a SORT NAMEwith a "%20"
> If this is correct, then a single remedy won't work. A different remedy has

> I did get suggestions last time I posted this problem, but each time I
