How to URL encode

URL encoding (also known as percent encoding) is a way to encode the data part of a URL using only characters that are legal within a URL. For example, you might want to include “John Smith” as part of a URL, but URLs are not allowed to include spaces. So you would need to URL encode it into “John%20Smith”, so you can pass it as part of a URL, for example:

You can easily URL encode or decode data with Easy Data Transform:

convert to URL encoding

save url encoding to Excel

If you have a large number of files to convert you can do it using the batch processing feature.

As well as URL encoding/decoding, Easy Data Transform also allows you to combine 66 transforms to quickly and easily get your data in the exact form you need it. For example you might want to use the Substitute transform to build a URL that includes the newly URL encoded data.
