I am trying to access tasks list using REST call using

site_url/_api/web/lists/getbytitle(‘tasks') in Internet Explorer.

It displays the message "The webpage cannot be found".

However i could get the results for site_url/_api/web/ and site_url/_api/web/lists

If this is exactly the URL you used in IE, there's a typo with the first apostroph sign: instead of a plain '.

  • Great Thanks!! I missed to check that. I was trying to change the list names but dint concentrate on that.
