Hi! I’m trying to create a prefilled form URL, but I believe the prefill isn’t working because I’m trying to prefill information with hyphens. Any ideas on how I can make this work?

Example:
Field Name: Type Name
Example data: Apples - Michigan

Form URL: “https://airtable.com/shrxxxxxxxx?"&“prefill_”&ENCODE_URL_COMPONENT(“Type Name”)&”="&ENCODE_URL_COMPONENT({Type Name})

How do I make sure “Apples - Michigan” doesn’t break the URL (and in turn, not prefill the form)?

AH we found another error in our formula, apologies! We thought the hyphen just wasn’t translating well into the URL but turns out it was something else!!

Hi @nisha_elliott your formula should work.

ENCODE_URL_COMPONENT does exactly that. What URL is generated currently?
