[bksvol-discuss] Re: upolading cypress point

Hi Cindy,

Yes, the file is cypress, but I selected rtf for the file type, and when I 
upload it I type cypress.rtf on the upload page.  I have tried all of the 
suggestions, but no matter what I do it just will not upload.  I have yet to 
successfully upload a file to bookshare.org on this computer, but it was a 
breeze on the other one.  I just don't know what to think or do.

Sue S.

Sue,

Are punctuation marks eliminated from the file name? I
assume the.rtf is there, since you've uploaded before
successfully, though I have occasionally forgotten to
add that when I'd been working on the book file
without the extension.
