Support Tip: Using special characters in C$SYSTEM command line

0 Likes

A call to C$SYSTEM fails when the command contains special characters like ‘&’:

CALL "C$SYSTEM" USING "START C:\TEMP\MF&2019.XLSX" 225
                GIVING RETURN-VAL

The following error is received. Only part of the command is recognized so the file cannot be found:

C:\TEMP\MF
Windows cannot find 'C:\TEMP\MF'. Make sure you've typed the name correctly, then try again.
