Why do I get sheet renamed error dialog when opening XlsIO generated file?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: XlsIO

This issue happens due to some invalid characters included in the worksheet name.

MS Excel has some restrictions for renaming the sheet. Some characters are not

allowed to use in a worksheet name.

Characters not allowed in sheetnames:
: \ / ? * [ or ]

  • Colon
  • Back slash
  • Forward slash
  • Question mark
  • Asterisk
  • Left and right square brackets
  • Also the text should not exceed 33 characters

So while renaming the sheet you cannot include the above characters.
