Word is displaying the “Not a Valid File” message. The following are possible causes and corrections for this message:

  1. Library Link was used to import or update a file that was not in Multiplan, Lotus, or Microsoft Excel BIFF formats.

    Press ESC to cancel the command.

  2. A character has been typed that is not allowed by the DOS filename format.

    Word highlights the character so you can press DEL, then retry the command.

  3. The filename is too long.

    Type a shorter name.
