Last updated on FEBRUARY 18, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle Application Express (APEX) - Version 5.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Problem with an application that is using XLS2COLLECTION to upload Excel files.

Since the upgrade to APEX 19.1, when the page is submitted, get the error that the file name contains invalid characters.
The issue happens due to the "Restricted Characters" setting. When uploading a file, the file name gets a "/" added.

But this error did not happen in the 5.0.x versions.



 Upgraded APEX 5.0.3 to 19.1
