So I have a report header with a hyperlink. It works if my URL path and file name have no spaces. It fails where there is a space...as is the case below. How do I adjust the syntax to account for the spaces?

TYPE=TABHEADING,
LINE=1,
OBJECT=TEXT,
ITEM=10,
SIZE=8,
COLOR=RGB(255 102 0),
TARGET='_blank',
URL=X:\DEPT\my reports\Dept Head List.PDF,

Anyone, I tried single quotes around the path and double...no dice. This seems pretty basic, what am I doing wrong?

Compute needs a TABLE FILE... SUM before it. Something like:
  
TABLE FILE CAR
SUM COMPUTE URLTXT/A150='C:\Downloads\Corporate file name.pdf'; NOPRINT

I tried the SET method and get this error; note I must use: |, when I use: || it errors out altogether.

ERROR AT OR NEAR LINE 11 IN PROCEDURE ADHOCRQ FOCEXEC *
(FOC324) THE PARAMETER TO BE SET IS NOT RECOGNIZED: RLSPACE
(FOC3202) BAD VALUE IN STYLESHEET FILE AT LINE 143: URL=(URLTXT2)


Using the compute now works but now I get the path value on every row printed...getting closer though...
