I have to save a file on a file server


Caused by the Dollar sign the path name can not be written in the  
document. I think that the $ sign invokes the math mode and that  
occures a failure. How can I encapsulate the $ as like as the &, so  
that *both* signs can be contained in a path?

TIA and kind regards. Friedrich
