Hi Mark, you can use encodeURIComponent to encode strings such as "black & white" and "café". Here's an online encoder: https://ole.michelsen.dk/tools/uriencode.html or you can open a browser debug console window and do it there, for example:
The command line would look like this:
tabcmd export --pdf -t mysite -f myfile.pdf "workbook/Sheet1?value=caf%C3%A9"
Hi Jeff, thank you for the direction on this. I am not getting any results after running the %26 in stead if the "&" in TabCmd. I even tried the double %%26 that TabCmd likes. Interesting note that when I paste the command info on to the web browser using the %26 it returns results. When I run the code through TabCmd I get no results.
The cafe example works great though!
Any other thoughts on this?

Thanks Jeff! Interesting how it worked for the EXPORT command but not the GET command... Much appreciated!
I was not able to get the ampersand working with the get command. I also found the encoding requirements are not the same for all special characters. This is what worked for me:
space - %%20
comma - %%5C%%2C - The escape is needed for a comma.
ampersand - %%26 - this works for export command, but not the get command.
