URLPathEncode - Convert a string for using on a URL path

' convert a string so that it can be used on a URL path
' Same effect as the Server.URLPathEncode method in ASP

Function URLPathEncode(ByVal Text As String) As String
    Dim i As Integer
    Dim acode As Integer
    URLPathEncode = Text
    For i = Len(URLPathEncode) To 1 Step -1
        acode = Asc(Mid$(URLPathEncode, i, 1))
        Select Case acode
            Case 48 To 57, 65 To 90, 97 To 122
                ' don't touch alphanumeric chars
            Case 33, 35, 36, 38, 42, 43, 45, 46, 47, 58, 63, 64, 95, 126
                ' these punctuation chars require no translation
            Case Else
                ' replace other chars with "%hex"
                URLPathEncode = Left$(URLPathEncode, i - 1) & "%" & Hex$(acode) _
                    & Mid$(URLPathEncode, i + 1)
        End Select
