Exact format of quota-file

Dear all,

While trying to edit a user quota (through edquota and whatever editor, such as vi, pico) i always get the same answer while leaving the editor:

edquota: Bad format:

and nothing changed; apparently, while editing i change the format of the file, but what exactly IS the correct format ? I don't seem to find it in any man-page...

I read at some other place that this effect might result from using 'weird' characters in names of file systems (e.g. blancs, underscores, etc). Could this be the key, and if so: what can i do about it (without changing the name of my file system, of course).
