CURL

Converts a URL and up to 20 arguments and returns the correctly formed, combined URL.

While much of the CURL functionality can be obtained through the use of CHYPERLINK, there are times when CHYPERLINK does not provide enough flexibility. For example, there may be characters which are difficult to embed correctly in the URL (eg “=”).

Once formed, this URL can be used within the CHYPERLINK formula.

Syntax

Arguments

HREF : string (required)

Specify a HREF URL link.

Arg1 : string

Specify the value of the first argument.

ArgN : string

Usage Scenarios
