Illegal characters in Visio page names

Hey Ken


   I keep getting bitten whenever I put funny characters in a Visio page name, and the latest troublemaker for me was the carriage return.  You can assign it to a page name via VBA, and it appears to work – until you close and re-open the document.  I searched around and found no mention anywhere of carriage returns causing a problem, so I thought I'd mention it here.  And since I'm here, I figure I may as well chronicle them all.  Chime in if you know of others.

   The forbidden characters include:
  • % – percent
  • / – slash
  • \ – backslash
  • ? – question mark
  • Carriage Return
  • Space as the last character (mentioned here)
   In addition to the ones above, the following characters in a page name will cause trouble if you hyperlink to them when saving as a web page
  • < – Less than
  • > – Greater than
  • & – Ampersand

   Hope this helps,

   - Ken
