Word and graphics

By keegan ·
I cannot see certian graphics in folders on a novell server that do not follow the 8.3 naming convention for the folder (the file name can be long but not the folder). As soon a I rename the folder to the 8.3 format the graphics show up. There is noproblem with Word 97, only Word 2000.

As far as I'm aware, Novell no longer support version 3.
As for version 4, you probably need to load one particular nlm on the server.
Version 5 should have native support to long file name (lfn).
In my environment, I have novell folders using lfn with embedded spaces.
Your problem might be due to a migration of a previous NOS which does not support lfn.
I doubt it has anything to do with Office.

As mentioned, long file names are OK but NOT long folder names. And also, Word 97 is ok with long folder names but not Word 2000. As mentioned, this is only affecting graphics.

don't worry about people stealing your ideas. if your ideas are any good, you'll have to ram them down people's throats.
