Invalid File Name for text file

Hi all,

I was just wondering why the naming convention of this file is not working.
Any help would be appreciated :slight_smile:

Could you please check whether file name contains any special characters or not.

Because your UNC should start with double backslash?

Cheers

Hi, thanks for your response, I have changed this and it is the same error

There are no special characters

\ S see that blank space there?

I would recommend you to test the path e.g. by creating the txt file in Notepad.

Cheers

“\arras-dc\users$\DataMan\Challenge 2”+JobTitle+ Now.ToString(“ddMMyyyy”) + “\Salary and Job Specification.txt” I have changed to this and still error thanks for that though

that is your path, only you can know what is wrong with it… but to be be hones it is obvious that is is not a valid path for anything… it could not start with a \, it should be like c:\ or \\
