Microsoft Excel Filenames

April 28th, 2005 | Tags:

Can anyone “out there” explain to me why, in the Microsoft Windows version, in Microsoft Excel 2002 (version 10 of this product), file names which conform to the OS standard are not supported?

Besides all of the other characters you can’t use in filenames, Excel will not work properly if your filename includes brackets. It will open the files just fine, and will let most functions work properly, but you can’t do a Save As… to that same filename in a different directory.

Go figure.
