MS_RFDIR character limitationsProduct: MicroStation V8Version: 08.00.00.00Area: Reference, Problem ID#: 37016, MAXLIMITSee Also: maximum characters, limit
255 characters per path and 30,000 total characters.In MicroStation V8 2004 Edition and earlier, MS_RFDIR had a limit ofabout 30,000 characters it could "store" and about 255 characters forthe paths.If you are running MicroStation 08.09.03 or later, it is possible toincrease the maximum size of MS_RFDIR by setting the configurationvariable MS_MAXCFGVAR_SIZE to the number of Kbytes required.For example, to set the maximum configuration variable size to 64K,you'd set MS_MAXCFGVAR to 64.As you are probably aware, the downside to putting many directories intoMS_RFDIR are:1. If you have multiple files with the same name in two differentdirectories, you might find the wrong file.2. It might take MicroStation a long time to search all thosedirectories, particularly if the reference file isn't in any of them.That could make file opening quite slow.
