Rex,

You need to enter the murky world of Regular Expressions! ;)

This one removes all banned characters from a string which is to be used as a file name:

$sText = "Wonder* Corporation /inc\"

$sNewText = StringRegExpReplace($sText, '\\|/|:|\*|\?|\"|\<|\>|\|', "")

MsgBox(0, "New Text", $sNewText)

I you have questions, I will try and answer them, but I am not an expert in SRE by any means. :evil:
