PRB: Problems w/ REPORT FORM <Report> TO <File> in Windows 3.1
2.50 WINDOWS kbprg kbprb
The information in this article applies to:
When you are sending output from a report to a file with the command
REPORT FORM <report> TO <file>
the maximum size of the file, drive letter, path and filename, can be only 31 characters long (the actual limit is 32 characters, but the last character is a null).
This behavior is a limitation of Windows 3.1.
Change the default directory to the directory you want the output file to go in, and then use the filename with no path.
Shorten the filename as much as possible. For example, instead of BIGTEST.TXT, name your file B.TXT.
