    Adding Dashes into a File name
    Hello all,
    I am new to Webmerge, but have been tinkering with it for the past few days. I have been able to get it to string together a few categories from a sample database to create a.html file. Here is an example:

    http://www.imediaweb.com/Alliance/Dish_Network/AndersonCountyBERRYVILLETX75763.html

    What I would like to know is if Webmerge has the capability of adding in "-" dashes in between categories, and also to fill in spaces of city and county names with spaces in them, so that the URL would look more like this:

    http://www.imediaweb.com/Alliance/Dish_Network/Anderson-County-BERRYVILLE-TX-75763.html

    Thanks for the time.

    Sincerely,
    Robert

    Space removed, but no dashes in file name...
    I have my database set up and ready to generate my pages, but the one thing that I am not figuring out, is that when I run it all through Webmerge the spaces in some of my data are removed and NOT replaced with dashes. Is there a setting that I am missing? I have read that this is typically an automatic process that happens.

    Thanks for everyones time,
    Robert
