So, are filenames also restricted to a maximum of seven ALPHA characters, the way labels are ?
No, there is no relationship between the filename used to store the .raw file (or any of the other files that may be saved) and the FOCAL program label. The 41OS is totally unaware of the files on FAT.

Also, you could just try saving a program to 12345678.raw
So, are we talking DOS filename convention with a maximum 8 character name and a 3 character extension ?
Hint 1: Try using 123456789ABC.raw

Hint 2: There is a pattern in these replies

Had The same problem.

Wanted to save SPEED.raw.

Problem solved.

Name Error take a look at Benutzerhandbuch Seite 127 Mögliche Fehler NAME ERROR or
hp owners manual vol.1 page 127 possible error conditions...


At 1st
i typed into
Alpha-Register >SPEED<,

Setup>File>Save RAW Program>New File>
typed in <SPEED>


Since i had loaded at first the alpharegister there is no further problem in saving raw programs.
i tried speed20210509 and it was saved with full name.
no truncation.

i think there was a initial problem caused by (empty or filled with non printable sequences like "high value", "low value") alpha register.
DM41X v2.1 DMCP v3.20 (IFC 03.15).
