.xlsx export doesn't work with slashes / in the filename on Mac OS
Operating system version
Mac OS X 10.6.8 & 10.7
Description of the issue
If you trie to export a file with a filename of that kind "report of the 12/01/2011.xlsx" it won't work, Filemaker will complain it can't create the file on the disk. Doing so wilt els export, or all other kind of exports works.
Though on windows platform this behavior could be legit (but at lead with proper error message so the user knows what its the problemen), because on windows / are forbidden in filenames. This characters are perfectly legit on Mac OS (in Mac Os, only the : character is forbidden) and are used a lot to display dates.
Steps to reproduce the problem
export a file as .xlsx with a filename of that kind "report of the 12/01/2011.xlsx"
Show export the file without problem
Can't export the file. Error message is this one :
Exact text of any error message(s) that appear
“?” could not be created on this disk. Use a different name, make more room on the disk, unlock it or use a different disk.
Mac OS X 10.6.8 and 10.7
don't put / characters in filenames (even though their are legit on mac os x)
Please pay attention to make sure all allowed Mac OS X characters are indeed allowed. In Mac OS X all characters are legit except ":", so Filemaler should allow filenames with all legit characters of the current platform. And at leads warn accordingly if those charcetres are forbidden
