    I am getting an error when we click on the attachment link all of the sudden (within the last couple days)..  Here is the error:



    This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below.

    <Error><Code>AccessDenied</Code><Message>Access Denied</Message><RequestId>4D6A0666A10D752A</RequestId><HostId>LE7Dj/woZ621l+FtjGz8L7hBIETRtC4hOk8y2JxvhqQo6+ZYl6w4BqfTEXygCWv8</HostId></Error>

    Try this fix for the file URL's that displays this error in order to download the file.

    When you open the file link, you'll noticed that the file name contains underscore "_", example. 


    Now, just replace the underscore with a space,  so it becomes like this.

    sample file name.docx

    So if the file link is like this:


    Make it like this:

    http://www.jotform.com/uploads/xxx/123213/227126496/sample file name.docx

    You should be able to download the file this way. Let me also inform you have this problem has been forwarded to our development team already for further investigation. Thanks!
