[Solved] Inadmissible path

Postby alanoc » Sun Jul 16, 2017 6:49 am

Using Open Office 4.1.2 (Mac)

When modifying path options, I entered /volumes/verbatim 1t hd1/documents *2 for the default My Documents path. The path is a valid path on my machine.

I receive the error 'Inadmissible path. The input syntax is invalid." What is the problem and is there a workaround?

I never had a MAC, and I do not know anything about the paths of the MAC.

Is this your adjusted path precisely?
/volumes/verbatim 1t hd1/documents *2


What is the " *2" at the end of the path? Are those characters parts of the path?

Do not use special characters in the path (spaces and * character). (There are spaces int middle of your path too.) Try it without these characters with a test path, that you created on your machine.


And what is the 'root' of the path in the MAC system?
A user defined path on the Windows looks like:
E:\Dokuments\Backup\LO\
where the 'E:' is a HDD.

Please share an original path of the AOO/LO settings from your MAC system.

Please, edit the topic's initial post, and add the word "[Solved]" at the beginning of the subject line - if your problem has been solved.

I am able to define a default path in OO on linux using spaces. I suspect the problem arises from the use of the "*". Try using an underscore instead in your path definition.

Thanks to both of you.Yes the * was the problem. I tried using a '-' and continued with the spaces; that worked.
I apologize for not responding earlier.

P.S. the full path is now /Volumes/verbatim 1T HD1/Documents -2
