object.XfrReceive8Dot3 = Value

Data type




Returns (first syntax line) or specifies (second syntax line) whether or not long file names received from an IBM mainframe are truncated. When this property is True, Host files with long names are truncated to the "8.3" format (file names have up to eight characters plus a three-digit extension) when received on the PC.

If you plan to use host files with long file names on your PC in the Windows 3.1x operating system (or if you're using Windows NT and your partition type does not support long file names), set this property to True.


The default is True.
