You have a Microsoft SharePoint Portal Server portal area with a name that contains spaces in Microsoft Content Management Server (MCMS) 2002 Connector for SharePoint Technologies. When you put Web parts inside the SharePoint Portal Server portal area, you may receive an error message and the area cannot be opened. You may also receive a message that is similar to the following in the application event log:
Event Source: Microsoft.SharePoint
This problem occurs because Microsoft Internet Explorer encodes the space character into an escaped character of %20. However, the percent (%) character is not supported in the Microsoft.SharePoint.SPWeb.OpenWeb method that is used by the MCMS 2002 Connector Web part API.
