Question for the group:

If I have a url with the following string:
[mysite.com...]

Let's say I want to disallow everything after the query value. Would the following robot.txt disallow be applicable:
User-agent: *
Disallow: /sub1/*/*/*.html?

?

Any help is much appreciated

For your robots.txt to block access to all URLs that include a question mark, you can add this entry:

User-agent: *
Disallow: /*?

This is not part of the official robots.txt protocol but it is supported by Google, Yahoo and Bing.
