Excel 2000 File Names Containing Spaces
Posted by Ian Bartlett on June 07, 2001 4:01 AM
I have an Excel 2000 spreadsheet (running under NT4) called Client Names.xls.
If I try to open the file by double clicking it in Explorer, Excel first tells me that it cannot find a file called Client.xls, and then can't find a file called Names.xls.
Following this, the file opens. The same happens if I open the file using a desktop shortcut.
Replacing the space in the name with an underscore cures the problem, but shouldn't I be able to use names with spaces? Is there a setting somewhere that's wrong? Any ideas?
