How do I stop webread from converting "%2B" into "+"?

5 views (last 30 days)
Unforunately, every time it webread runs it converts the all of the "%2B" into "+" and then returns an error. How do I get it to use the exact URL as entered???
It keeps returning this error:
Error using matlab.internal.webservices.HTTPConnector/copyContentToFile (line 389)
The server returned the status 403 with message "Forbidden" in response to the request to URL

Error in readContentFromWebService (line 62)
copyContentToFile(connection, filename);
Error in webread (line 125)
[varargout{1:nargout}] = readContentFromWebService(connection, options);
Here's my code:
TF = webread('https://s3.amazonaws.com/appforest_uf/f1620499445726x864228122125595900/JBL%20VRX932LAP%20PSHF%2B3dB%20-%202m%20-%207150%20142.csv')

Thanks Rik. I tried this. Unfortunately, it produces the same error.
oldURL = 'https://s3.amazonaws.com/appforest_uf/f1620499445726x864228122125595900/JBL%20VRX932LAP%20PSHF%2B3dB%20-%202m%20-%207150%20142.csv';
newURL = strrep(url,'%2B','%252B');
TF = webread(newURL);
