Wouldn't you want to URL Encode the data, if you are going to push it back
to the browser as a link/URL??


         varURLString = URLData(varDBString)

'' URLData Function
'' Required Info Passed to Function:
''      varDataLine
Function URLData(varDataLine)
     if not(varDataLine = "") then
                 varDataLine = Server.URLEncode(varDataLine)
     end if
     URLData = varDataLine
End Function
