I am trying to package an ArcGIS map but each time I try I get the error: "The name of the Field is invalid: valid names may contain letters, numbers, or underscores."

The problem is that I have no idea what field that the error is talking about. I have quite a few layers so I'm not sure which it is. Is there any way to find out what field the error is talking about?

Analyzing the map package and the map doesn't show any field name issues.

Thanks

Does the map package operation write anything to Geoprocessing Results that you can look at?

Thanks for replying I was just hoping there was an easier way to check which field names were incorrect. I have quite a few files associated with this project. As for file types file types I mainly have shapefiles and .cvs files.
