Symptoms

Problem Summary
---------------------
Family Table instances with long file names will not open in Creo.

Problem Description
-----------------------
Family Table instances will not open in Creo if the Instance and Generic names are too long.

By default the EC Connector populates the 'variant' filed with INSTANCE.PRT.
If the value of this is greater than 50 characters, the variant field is blank. When running a Load-To-CAD on the instance, Creo will not open anything.
EC funtions fine with shorter named family table designs.
