I have been using spread for some research purpose. Would like to know if
there is an upper limit on the UserName character length i provide..
I do
	sprintf(Spread_name,"4803 at");
	int ret_val_connect;
		AfxMessageBox("Unable to Connect");

this works fine..but if i provide a length more than 10 characters say
"ABCDEFGHIJKLM" as user name the call
	ret_val_connect= SP_connect(in_SpreadName, in_ConnectionName, 0, 1,
&m_Mbox, m_PrivateGroup );
returns m_PrivateGroup as "#ABCDEFGHIJ#SpreadMachineName"

How do i prevent this from getting truncated?Have tried going through the
enormous archives of discussions but of no avail. Please advice as i am
dealing with data that have names far greater than 10 characters. Am
relatively new to spread so some help here will be of immense help.
