Avoiding Embedded Spaces in GBAK Encrypt/Decrypt and Sep Statements

When using the -sep (for creating the System Encryption Password), -encrypt, -decrypt arguments, it is recommended that you avoid using delimited identifiers and password arguments with embedded spaces in the argument, if possible.

The -sep, -encrypt, -decrypt arguments require quotations if they contain embedded spaces. If quotations are required, the quotation nesting level depends on whether GBAK is invoked with the -service switch. If the -service switch is not given, then one level of quotation is satisfactory. If the -service switch is given, then two levels of quotation are required.
