Site and File Naming – Invalid Characters

Posted by Steve Pietrek on September 11, 2007

I ran into this issue a few days ago. “Essential SharePoint 2007” had a note on the subject.

SharePoint sites cannot contain the following characters:

\ / : * ? ” < > | # { } % & <TAB>

Files uploaded to SharePoint cannot contain the following characters:

: # % & * : < > ? \ { | } ~

BTW, ESP2K7 is an excellent book. Little on development – higher level topics instead – recommended nonetheless.

  1. In addition the following are not allowed in file names:
    # multiple dots in a row
    # dots at the end of a file name
    # spaces at the beginning or end of a file name (will be trimmed)

    Meanwhile
    ` @ $ ^ ( ) - + = ; [ ] ' . ,.txt
    is a VALID file name…

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
