I just did a test upload to test out the theory, and had no problem uploading the
BOOTH,Alice Jan O.,Weardale,10a,1
The above is a cut and paste from the actual record in the file.
Just out of interest was your entry?
Booth,Alice Jane 0.,Woolwich,1d,2060
Booth,'Alice Jane 0.',Woolwich,1d,2060
Would it be possible to do a cut and paste of the record (in Notepad or WordPad)
and mail it to me?

Subject: Failure to upload
I sent the following message to my coordinator, without result. Can
anybody help me out, please?
I'm trying to upload 95M30030, and get the following message:
"Unexpected characters in first names 'Alice Jane 0.' at line 179
(Booth,Alice Jane 0.,Woolwich,1d,2060)"
I have double-checked the original and my SpeedBMD and don't find
anything wrong. Is it complaining because this person has an initial for a
third name? What should I do?
