I have a couple of scripts that save a file as part of the process (i.e. DWF, DWG, ZIP, etc). It would appear that the file path is too long, as it is being truncated to 137 characters in the one example that I have available to me at the moment.

I am using Windows XP and Hurricane version 6.8.17, is there a workaround for this?

Thanks.

You can try to ensure that the filename is in "quote" characters... and if using a TAG, use "$FILENAME$.DWG". Otherwise, this would be a limitation of AutoCAD alone.

Thanks for the tip. I did a little testing and sure enough, the problem seems to be within AutoCAD. If I run the line of code manually from a prompt, it REPORTS the full filename, but once it does the ACTUAL save, it has truncated it.

I must not have been thinking straight that day or I would have tested it that way before ever posting in the forum.

Thanks for the quick response though.
