Open URL doesn't pass the complete parms to IE? (open url zipcode lookup)


I am using open url to go from FM10 to the USPS site and retrieve the zip code.


In my button set up I have specified (server and userid omitted)

"serverxxxx" &

"ShippingAPITest.dll?" &

"API=ZipCodeLookup" &
"&XML=<ZipCodeLookupRequest%20USERID=\"useridxxxx\">" &
"<Address%20ID=\"0\">" &
"<Address1></Address1>" &
"<Address2>6406%20Ivy%20Lane</Address2>" &
"<City>Greenbelt</City>" &
"<State>MD</State>" &
"</Address>" &


When I click on the button this is what I see in the dialog box:



But when the info get inserted in IE it drops the last character. This is what appears in IE



Note the last > is missing. Why?

I tried adding a space to the end when specifiying the calc but FM/IE still dropped the final >.

I thought maybe I was hitting some sort of string length problem and shorted the test street name and it still dropped the >.

Any ideas - pointers to where I might look?
