Error when knitting to html document: The name of the input file cannot contain the special shell characters: [ <>()|:&;#?*']

Knitting to word, html etc.
I keep getting shut down when knitting my document. I receive the following error message:

Error: The name of the input file cannot contain the special shell characters: [ <>()|:&;#?*'] (attempted to copy to a version without those characters 'Psyc-5016H-ANCOVA_5.Rmd' however that file already exists)
Execution halted

Any ideas?

RStudio Cloud Project: https://rstudio.cloud/project/522469

This is not specific to RStudio Cloud, knitr is having issues with your file name, I have opened your project, renamed the file as Psyc_5016H_ANCOVA_5.Rmd and the document knits normally.
