STRPCCMD
I am trying to use the STRPCCMD command to open a PDF document from an iSeries 'green screen'. It all works okay until I try to open one with a large path name - the command can only handle 123 characters. Does anyone know a way to get around this? An API perhaps.

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

A possibility would be to “alias” the long path name with a mapped drive. (?)
