MS Excel 2007 german.png
When trying to insert or rename a sheet with an already existing name, LibreOffice prints: "Invalid sheet name."
MS Excel uses more revealing error massage. Have a look at the attached screen shot (sorry it's german).
The current message "Invalid sheet name." gives the impression that a chosen sheet name is generally invalid. This is confusing if the document contains many sheets and it is recognizable immediately that the chosen name already exists.
Use more revealing error message (like MS Excel) why sheet is not allowed.
I can have a go at this one. Should we add something like this?
Invalid sheet name.
The following rules apply:
- cannot be a duplicate of an existing sheet name.
- cannot contain the characters [ ] * ? / \ .
- must be 31 or fewer characters.
It looks good!
Thanks for implementing. Will it be already fixed in 3.5 final?

No sorry it will not be in 3.5, you have to wait for 3.6 for this one. The reason is that 3.5 is in string freeze so that all the translators can keep up.
Hope you are not too down beat by this. Keep filing bugs if/when you find some and maybe help to resolve them, if you want. Your help is appreciated.
