    Illegal symbols in filenames

    Help! been out of the QA loop for 6 months and have forgotten some of the stupidest little things. Right now I need to know which symbols are illegal in filenames (ie /, \, ?). Can someone also point me to a site that provides this type of stuff too?

    Thanks!

    But hey, guess what, I just did a search in help and found them so don't worry about this. Should have looked myself a bit more before posting this. Told you I was rusty!

    Re: Illegal symbols in filenames

    I always wondered, why is ! not a reserved character?
