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

Have an even more bizarre problem, though the 218 character limit is also annoying. But for one client - and one only - I am reduced to file names of only around 21 characters. Anything beyond that Excel refuses. Very hard to make meaningful files names w only 21 characters.
