the box is a character that is not supported on the palm pilot, and should not be there.
Is the character also there when the file is opened on a PC ?
If you want to give a different name to a named file
% ( normal un-named file )
$ABC123.MIN% ( filename in the control when transmitted )
--> <PIP> --> <READ> --> CN0:,456.MIN --> <WRITE> ( note the comma )( CN0 is the RS232 device channel )
CN0: can be omitted if the default device is the RS232 port
.MIN can be omitted as it also is the default extension
the 456 can be omitted as A.MIN is the default filename
so you can simply put a ,(comma)
--> <PIP> --> <READ> --> , <WRITE> ( will give the new uploaded file a name of A.MIN )
A % is required at the end to terminate the transfer session, if it is missing, the file cannot be closed, and the machine may require a re-boot.
