Downloaded excel File Name contains strange character

Hi All,

I recently found that the file name of excel from CommCare contains some
character (%26 Consent%3A) as below.
Is there anything wrong with my App or could you please suggest me what is
wrong?

(App Name) - Household Registration - 1. Register %26 Consent%3A 2016-12-20
2016-12-23

Thanks,
Kyaw Htet

Hi Kyaw,

Usually this just means there is a space in the name of the export.
Frequently, spaces are interpreted as % in a URL’s encoding. Is this a web
based export?

Thanks,

Hi Robin,

Thanks for the explanation. Yes, it is web based export.
I have done it many times before but this is the first time I experienced
it and would like to know if there is any error. According to your
explanation, I hope it is not a problem.

Thanks,
Kyaw Htet

Hi Kyaw,

I am actually observing this something occurs when the export has a “:”, so
we will look into fixing this. There’s no error on your end.

Thank you for reporting, and I’ll make sure to update this thread with any
changes.

-Robin
