API: Escaping Spaces in Table Names

(Michael) #1

The API doesn’t like spaces in the table name in the URL property of webhook workflows. Does anyone know how to escape the spaces?..

@Michael
URLENCODE for the space character is denoted as %20 i.e.

Escaping Table >> Escaping%20Table

Rather than a space in the column headers or table names, I may advise use of an underscore character (_) instead. Then you don’t need to urlencode.

@LeventK You Sir are an AppSheet Rockstar! Thank you.

As for avoiding spaces; I know better but, its too late to correct now as I have several apps relying on this table so, the name cannot be changed. Not without way more work than I want to do.
