[access-uk] Re: Please can somebody tell me if this is a bug in XP Home?

Hi Colin,

I think the maximum filename length is 255 characters. That must be an
enormous file since it's a .wav file.

Cheers,

Mike

Greetings,

I attempted to move a file named:

"Classic Serial The Complete Smiley - The Karla Trilogy Book 3 - Smiley's
People 3 - Smiley moves the operation to Berne. But can he be sure he's the
hunter, not the hunted.wav"

from 

c:\attachments 

to 

k:\Radio Drama and readings\Classic Serials yet to be processed 

and received a message advising the file could not be moved either because
the file name was invalid or the file name was too long.

surely, if there is a file name length limit, why would XP Home allow me to
create a file with such a name?  The file name is not invalid else I would
never have been allowed to create it so what is the maximum length allowed
for a file to be moved/copied? and can anybody suggest what is wrong with
the filename to have it reported invalid?

Thanks.
