  1. Are you sure, it´s Windows, who put the brackets in the filename? So I tryed to save/copy a file with an existing filename - in Excel produces round brackets (= perfect) - in Windows it asks about what to do: "no copy", "overwriting" or "keep both" (Keep both uses also round brackets! So where does the square brackets come from?? - Maybe is there a Setting anywhere to Change the Kind of brackets? In Evernote or Windows,...?? Thanks for help to solve the Problem! (Round bracket would make the world much easier ;-)) Jens
  2. @gazumped: Thanks for the detailed explanation! But one small, important thing, is not correct! Wrong: "MyFile.xlsx - it already exists; so it goes to MyFile(1), MyFile(2) etc." correct: "MyFile.xlsx - it already exists; so it goes to MyFile[1], MyFile[2] etc." And exactly these square brackets will cause the Problem!!! These square brackets are not allowed in Excel convention (-> see Attachement of my first post) So I call it a bug! Itcan be easily solved by using round brackets "(", ")" I hope in the next Evernote Version this bug will be removed. Until then my Workaround is to rename the Excelsheet in Evernote before opening. By opening this "new file", no automatic Extension will be made and Pivot is working well. Best regards Jens
  3. Hello Evernote-Team, I am using Excel-Sheets to collect a mass of data and analyse them with Excels Pivot functions. For Pivot-functions Excel uses additional access to the file; And this produces an error Evernote is adding an Extension to the filename like [1], in the amendment folder. (I guess it is for protection of overwriting of different file Versions) As these characters are prohibited as filenames, Excel produces an error, when doing a Pivot Analysis. (see attached screenshot) => Please change the type of characters used for filename-Extension into allowed ones. Thanks Jens
