Hi we are facing an issue when exporting attachments like below can you suggest how can we avoid this error


Attachment (The specified path, file name, or both are too long. The fully qualified file name must be less than 260 characters, and the directory name must be less than 248 characters.)

Most likely, the name length of some files (attachments) in your Salesforce is more than 255 characters. Thus, we recommend you to check this. For example, via Skyvia Query Tool:

SELECT t.Id, t.Name

  FROM Attachment AS t

  where LENGTH(t.Name) >=255


In fact, Salesforce UI doesn't allow to give Name for the attachments with more that 255 characters.
