Bug report #16291

Warp (reproject) Raster Filename Error

Added by Rainer Spalt over 7 years ago. Updated almost 7 years ago.

Assignee:Giovanni Manghi
Affected QGIS version:2.18.4 Regression?:No
Operating System:Windows Easy fix?:No
Pull Request or Patch supplied:No Resolution:fixed/implemented
Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:No Copied to github as #:24201


When you try to reproject a Raster and the filename has an underline in it you'll get the Error:

"ERROR 6: Invalid filename. Must be ABCDEF01.GEN "

This occurs not only the filename itself like "test*_*01.tiff" but also in the pathname like "C:/User/..../Project*_*01/test.tiff"

Seems like a rather trivial problem, but we work a lot with underlines on our local server. For now we have to save it in a dummy folder and then copy the file to the actual project folder.

This issue is in 2.14. and 2.18 Version
