Sheet List Table Issue

I am having an issue with the sheet set manager's tool to insert sheet list table.  I have a new sheet set for a new project that was created entirely in Autocad 2012.  When I try to insert a new sheet list table, after I click OK in the Sheet list Table dialoge box, it simply closes to an empty command line with nothing inserted.  Any ideas on why nothing is inserted?

I have a few suggestions I need you to check the results. As a test, use the 2012 program to open one of the sample DST files that ships with your 20012 program. Then try inserting the sheet list table.


One step we could test is deleting the related .dst file, located in the project directory [containing the .apj file by default]. Make sure to backup the .dst file beforehand in case it is needed later.


Close out of AutoCAD and the project. Afterwards it will rebuild itself, and you can attempt to insert the Sheet List again.

The issue appears to be caused by there being a comma in the name of the sheet set, as it shows atop the list in the Sheet Set Manager.  If the comma is removed, you'll be prompted for insertion point as expected.  This behavior has been corrected for the 2013 AutoCAD products and it may be included in a service pack for the 2012 products.
