Writing a QVD doesn't like spaces??? Feb bug?

I used to write QVD files to a directory with a user name and this stopped working in the feb version. To troubleshoot I made 2 Folder connections pointing to the same location:

QVDFiles

QVDFiles (abc_student)

So both of these STORE commands should work - or both should fail. Unfortunately only the first works

STORE MasterCalendar INTO 'lib://QVDFiles/MasterCalendar.qvd'(qvd);

STORE MasterCalendar INTO 'lib://QVDFiles (abc_student)/MasterCalendar.qvd'(qvd);

>

The following error occurred:

Connection not found: QVDFiles (abc_student)

The error occurred here:

STORE MasterCalendar INTO 'lib://QVDFiles (abc_student)/MasterCalendar.qvd'(qvd)

>

Any ideas? I created both connections with the same account - so it's not a permission issue.

use double quotes or square brackets in your store statements instead of single quotes?

try this

semicolumn missing

STORE MasterCalendar INTO [lib://QVDFiles (abc_student)/MasterCalendar.qvd] (qvd);

Re: Writing a QVD doesn't like spaces??? Feb bug?

Both of those suggestions worked. All of this syntax worked in Feb:

STORE MasterCalendar INTO 'lib://QVDFiles/MasterCalendar.qvd'(qvd);

STORE Orders INTO "lib://QVDFiles (abc_student)/MasterCalendar.qvd"(qvd);

STORE Orders INTO [lib://QVDFiles (abc_student)/MasterCalendar.qvd](qvd);

'Though the other syntax worked in prior versions
