"Save view as"

I'm trying to use the "Save view as" function on a form in one of my Approach 97 databases.  I select the function and it does nothing.  Any other form or report in this file, I can do this function on with no problems.  Any ideas what may be preventing my doing this?

RE: "Save view as"

There are a number of bugs with Save View As in A97. Couple of things you can try:

1. Save to a path/filename that doesn't contain spaces.

2. If a report view, special characters in a textbox in the header can cause this. If there are any characters that aren't letters or numbers, try removing them.
