Pound sign in field causing issues with OpenURL (gmail custom function)

Hi there,

 

I'm using the gmail custom function (FileMaker Custom Function:gmail ( to ; subject ; body ; cc ; bcc ) ) to send....wait for it...GMail directly from FileMaker. It works very well, except for the fact that if the body text has a pound sign, everything afterwards is truncated.

 

Since the usage involves sending physical mailing addresses in the body, this is problematic, but it kind of makes sense because of the nature of URLs.

 

Does anyone know of a way around it?

 

Thanks!
