##### In MVC Razor, how can I correctly add querystring parameters to an html.actionlink?

I have an MVC Razor page where I am trying to add a querystring parameter to the URL.

``````<td>
My desired outcome is: `http://[server]/FourCourseAuditDetails/Index?filterByStudent="[item.Student_Name]"`, but when I test out the page, the anchor href attirubte looks like this: `http://[server]/[route of current view]?length=[integer value]`
The thing that came to mind is that item.Student_Name is a string that contains spaces and commas. I tried `filterByStudent = item.Student_Name.toString()`, which didn't help. I still think that's the cause of the problem, but I don't know what else I can do. Any ideas?
