Creo File Won't Save / File Naming

Postby nt65 » Tue Oct 14, 2014 5:46 pm

If you are having trouble saving your file while using Creo it is likely because of your file name. When saving a file in Creo make sure to follow the naming convention rules in the syllabus as well as these important points:

1) File names have a 31 character limit. You cannot create or retrieve an object with more than a 31 character file name.
2) You cannot use brackets, such as [ ], { }, or ( ), spaces and punctuation marks (.?!;) in file names.
3) File names can contain hyphens (-) and underscores (_), however, the first character in a file name cannot be a hyphen.
4) Use only alphanumeric characters (see hyphen and underscore exception in previous bullet) in file names. Object files containing nonalphanumeric characters (such as @, #, and %) in their names do not display in, and are not retrievable from dialog boxes. You cannot save new object files with nonalphanumeric characters in their names.
5) Use only lowercase characters for file names. An object or file on disk always saves with the name in lowercase.
