Hmm, strange, I haven't notice that myself.

For me allowing a blank prefix is a feature and not a bug! If someone
wants to have his/her default worksheets named with only numbers (1,
2, 3...) who are we to deny him/her of that? Unless there is some
technical reason against that I have overlooked of course.

Yes, I will have another look at this.

Thanks Noel for pushing it.
