Thank you for your input on Excel’s filepath limit! We have included this feature as part of upcoming work.

I am using Office 365 and all my files are on SharePoint.
I am also facing this problem too. 218 characters is not enough.
Also I noticed that in the URL has some repeated info such as https://mydomain.sharepoint.com/Mylibrary/Forms/Allitems.aspx?viewpath=Mylibraryaspx&id=Mylibrary
The path for "Mylibrary" is repeated 3 times, which takes one-third of my total path lengh.
Is there a way to improve the URL so that it won't repeat library path three times and increase 218 limit?
