QShell Filename Size
I'm trying to use Qshell to copy a file from server to server and rename it with a date/time stamp... e.g. file.txt to file090220091000.txt and there seems to be a limit of 12 characters for the complete "target" name, including the .txt; can anyone help? Thanks

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Hi,

What sort of system is the target? Is there a limitation on that system with file naming ? Qshell should handle long file names without any problems.

Regards,

Martin Gilbert.

    Thanks for writing, Martin... Actually both the source and target servers are Server 2003 and my platform is an iSeries that picks up files from one, processes, and drops off on the other. The reason I was focusing on Qshell is that some of my processes have run for years using mapped drives, and others using QNTC, with no problems. I'm trying to re-do all of them with Qshell, with that being the only change. I'm using a "cp" command, and after experimentation have discovered that the target filename won't work at any length > 12. ???

    Hi, As far as I know, there shouldn't be any problem with long file names in Qshell. Try doing a cp to somewhere on your IFS with a long file name as an experiment, see whether that works. Maybe it's some sort of (compatibility) setting in Server 2003? Can you try copying a file from a windows PC to the same place on the Server 2003 mapped drive with a long file name?
