Some import interfaces only accept file names (including path) that have a maximum of 45 characters.

System Response

Today i have got error for the same. I have analysed that and resolved it.

Reason is we are taking the more character for "Project, Sub project and Object".

because these all are appearing in "specify files" tab, the system will calculate in Imported Data & Converted data as below:

Thanks & regards,

Hi Amar,

not sure but... maybe the file name (including path, that is to say something like C:\documents and settings\lsmw\temporary\filename) is longer than 45 characters thus leading to the error message.

Did you try to change the filename and/or move it to a root directory to make the fullname shorter ?

Hope it helps, pls. reward if useful.

Even I was facing the same error- "file-name-'converted-data'-max-45-characters.html" and same is resolved after shortening the Name of Project , Sub- project & Object. Thanks for solution.

I had the same error and followed the lead from Santosh. The problem for me was long project and subproject names. I recreated with short names and error is no longer there

Even I am facing this error. I tried from the root directory also. But I am getting the same error. (D:\LSMW\t.txt).

Also, another text file with the path name C:\Documents and Settings\Desktop\testmass.txt was uploaded without any problem.

Can anyone please help in solving this?

I think you need to move it to C: drive. This will make the file name smaller. I have faced this problem also and moving it to C drive (root directory) worked.
