Hello, I tried to add a name with & in the middle and it would show "Unknown Reource Unable to locate information for this resource" when you tried to schedule. For example A&W. Is there a way for me to make this possible. Thanks

Because the ampersand (&) is a special character when used in the URL, you really can't use an "&" in a Resource Name.

As a work-around... which I haven't tried myself... this may work:

STEP 1: Make a backup of your current script.

STEP 2: Open your script with any text editor such as WordPad.

STEP 3: Do a search on the following line:

$temp_string =~ s/ /_/g;

(There will be exactly TWO occurrances of this line in the script.)

STEP 4: Immediated AFTER BOTH of the occurrances, add the following line:

$temp_string =~ s/&/%26/g;

(So you will be adding the above line in TWO places in the script).

STEP 5: Save the script... as TEXT if your editor asks... and try it out.

Good luck!
