Problem writing to path over 200 characters, is there a way around this?

Hello,

When a job in SAS DI Studio writes to a path that's over 200 characters long, the filename is cut off. So, in example, a CSV-file might end up as "/SASEnvironment/etc/etc/etc/filename.cs" and be considered a C# file. I believe this is due to a Windows limitation. Is there any way around this other than shortening folder and file names?

Thanks.

You could declare a macro or environment variable that holds the major part of the path.
