    ****************************************************************
    Although RPT will block you from using the % character in a
    schedule name if you're creating a new schedule, it will
    allow % in a name when doing Save As for an existing
    schedule.  If we're going to block % when creating
    schedules, we should likewise do it for Save As.
    
    If you run such a schedule (Run As-?Performance Schedule),
    you'll get a set of results that includes a % in the name.
    Export to HTML won't work with this set of results due to
    the %.
    

Problem conclusion

  • We perform additional validation on the schedule name
    entered by the user during Save As.
