why can i not save a word file with a long file name
Posted on 2008-10-14
i have been saving word documents for months with long file names.. i just recieved an error when i tried to save a Word file that i edited after recieving it from an email. the error was "cannot save the file "report dog pk study sept 08 10_13.docx" is not a valide short file name (maximum eight characters, plus a three-character file extension. Type a valid file name, and then save the file again."
Why did this happen.. how can i fix it to accept long file names?
