With some testing I found the limit is 64 characters. Still, I'd like to know where this is in the documnetation.

This information can be found in the Developing Reporting Applications manual, under Defining and Allocating WebFOCUS files / Application Files Under Windows / Procedures Under Windows.

The limit may also be related to your OS.

Also the FOCUS catalogs only support up to 64 characters.

According to Microsoft:
quote:
"In the Windows API (with some exceptions discussed in the following paragraphs), the maximum length for a path is MAX_PATH, which is defined as 260 characters."


So for the OS, the maximum length of your file names depends on the path they're in (on the host file-system).

So the maximum length for your file names is either 64 characters (limited by WebFOCUS), or less if the path to your files is longer than 196 characters (limited by Windows).
