Dear all,

I am trying to convert an Excel file to a Multiterm 2009 termbase.
I have converted the Excel file successfully, using Multiterm 2009 Convert.
Now, in the Termbase Wizard, at the Index Fields step (step 3 out of 5), when I click Next,
I receive a message saying "Item contains invalid characters" and the Termbase Wizard does not go to the next step.

Could you please tell me what the problem could be and how to solve it?

Thank you in advance,
