i need to call a web service on a DB share link   here is the web service call.  

the first (old format ) works fine.

the second call using the new format does not work.  the links were made from the same folder within seconds of each other.

Hi @JohnPT,

You have a mistake! In spite not always resulted, passing non-tagged parameter obviously leads to errors of different kind. This hidden bug in your code appears on the second link (there is a predispose, but it's not the reason itself). Probably, you can figure out what's going on and how that activates your bug in such a case (as a 'homework'). 😁

The solution: As I mentioned, just url-encode applied to the passed URL (Dropbox link) before passing as parameter. 😉 That's it.

Hope this helps.
