The specified path, file name, or both are too long

I am trying to import several thousands Excel files and I get this mistake below.

What is the best away of approaching this error in the light of a high humber of the files imported?

Can it found these files using Windows Search option?

Re: The specified path, file name, or both are too long

Please try maping the path to a network drive like "K:" or "S:" and use that path (eg: \\abcd\abc\def\ghi\klm\a1234.xlsx" - map this \\abcd\abc\def\ghi\klm to "S" drive and refer as "S:\a1234.xlsx" and reduce the file name to limited characters as mentioned in the error message
