    Question

  • I am getting the following error in MOSS 2007 site

    A DDE error has occurred, and a description of the error cannot be displayed because it is too long. If the filename or path is long, try renaming the file or copying it to a different folder.

    I have checked and the path has less than 200 characters.Please help.

  • This issue is only occured due to document path lenght only. please verify it again.

    The total length of the path and the file name, including file name extension and also encoded lenght, all  should not be more than

    Microsoft Word: The total length of the path and the file name, including file name extension, exceeds 259 characters.

    Microsoft PowerPoint: The total length of the path and the file name, including file name extension, exceeds 259 characters.

    Microsoft Access: The total length of the path and the file name, including file name extension exceeds 259 characters.

    Microsoft Excel: The total length of the path and the file name, including file name extension, exceeds 218 characters.

    To fix this

    • Rename the file so that it has a shorter name.
    • Rename one or more folders that contain the file so that they have shorter names.
    • Move the file to a folder that has a shorter path name.
