Insert File with "%" in Name


I have a string (which represents a filename) stored in a FMP text filed. I'm looping through the database and inserting a file into a container field.


It seems if the filename contains a "%" (percentage sign, as in TheFile%20-%20TheRest.pdf), FPM does not like that.


Right now I store the filename in $TheFileName and then use [Insert MyDataFile::MyContainerField; "$TheFleName"]



Is there anything I can do to avoid this problem? All suggestions appreciated.
