Excel 2000 Saving problem


Posted by Rich Baxter on June 27, 2001 7:59 AM

Hello
I have a user trying to save an Excel 2000 file over the network but getting this error:

"Save Not Completed. File Rename Failed. Retry?"

She can save it to her hard drive, but not over the network. The network permissions are set up OK. Any ideas?

Thanks
Rich

PS - TechNet refers to it, but has no idea either!

Hi Rich:

Possible illegal characters in the filename and/or filename-length not tolerated by network drives?
