Problems with changing variable names


When adding a new variable at the recorder variables, then it isn’t possible for me to change the name permanently. I can change th name in het box, but when pushing “enter” it changes back to the name processed when adding the variable (so “variable”, “variable01” and so on).


Hi, @Peter_van_Rooij2, most likely you try to enter capital letters, or spaces. We do not support either of this in variable names.



Recorder Variables names should be defined using alphabetical characters in lower case and underscore. All other characters as numeric and special symbols are not supported.

You can vote for your post to promote extension of the character set, if you assume it as a valuable feature.


Thanks for your answers. I’m so used to start with a capital and didn’t try all small letters.
