Kjell suggested single quoting the URL and that's a good idea.

set noglob

is what I use with tcsh to prevent interpretation of the ? as a filename globbing character. It's especially important if you use defined variables like:

set password = ********

and then include $password inside of your URL with double quotes. The ? mark will get you every time. Try:

echo https:// . . . . &reportId=6397.0

and see if your shell tries to glob it into a filename.
