Hi Katherine,
The error is because the file name is not in proper format.
To resolve this error follow the rules mentioned below.
1) The file name should be a short name with eight character name
2) It must have a period (.) and a 3 character extension
3) The length of the file name can be extended by adding a vertical bar (|)
4) There should not be any special characters in the file name
5) The full path syntax is not allowed

If you want to specify a name for your file, you cannot create or give a name that contains the special characters indicated in the error message. Those characters serve different functions to the system that’s why they cannot be used as part of a file name. To name a file properly, use the letters from “A” to “Z” and numbers from “0” to “9”.

You can also use a dash or a hyphen (-) in the file name as well as underscore (_), at sign (@), and more except those symbols mentioned in the error message.
