Hi Thierry,

The quick answer is no.  You can find more information about this topic
here:

The longer answer is that there are some workarounds that can be
implemented using the ASCII value of the character.

In practice, however, I would recommend against using any reserved
characters in file names unless there's a strong business need.  One
example of this might be a web development company that has a strong
business need for including "@" characters in names.

Scott

Is it good practice to have filenames containing the # sign in the
depot, for instance:

Hello#1.txt
