Hello
I'm translating an excel document on fashion. I had no problem saving the target file yesterday, but today am getting the message "failed to save content: sheet name leather contains any of the following forbidden characters \ / : ? *. The only ones I can see are colons, and removing them makes no difference. I can't understand why they would be forbidden anyway.
Grateful for any help.

Hi Anne Dec 9, 2019

Simply do not rename the sheet(s).

BTW, colon is a forbidden symbol - you cannot use it in filenames, the same is true for Excel sheets.

Hi Natalia,
Thanks. Problem is the sheet name itself contains none of these characters, so have no idea what else to try.

Anne, I don't mean the filename - your Excel file must be a 'workbook' (or whatever it is called in English, I have Polish Windows) that includes one or more worksheets; their names are visible at the bottom of the xls:

Worksheet 1
