Long Office File Names on Novell 4.11

By randyc5970 ·
We've experienced off and on problems with people saving Office files over 8 characters to Novell Servers. It seems that the files can be saved initially with no problems, but once they are opened, edited and saved again the file gets corrupted andand the Office program doesn't recognize the file type and is unable to open the file. HELP!!

Long Office File Names on Novell 4.11

i would highly recommend adding the long name space to the affected volume(s). it is impractical to use only the dos name space (8.3 convention) with the proliferation of windows 9x/nt4/2000 and programs which use long filenames. unless there is a compelling reason not to add it, this would be the best solution.

My appologizes, I should have said that the Long Name space has been added to the affected volumes. Which is the reason we can initially save the files. the problem arises after the saved files are edited and saved again.
