Naming office files in a Library

So everyone running MOSS works with libraries, and working with office files stored
on libraries. Most of the times it works as a bliss, but there a few notes. Within
the naming of folders in your library NEVER use the following characters, since while
your SharePoint works nicely with them, your Word or PowerPoint will actually fail
trying to open the file, giving  you an error that it cannot be

  • $

  • &

  • +

  • ,

  • /

  • :

  • ;

  • =

  • ?

  •  @

Just refrain from using these characters either in your filename, folder name or anything
else that goes in the url. And make sure all your users know about this.
