[export] Export /This is a long folder name that is longer than 50 chars\Boilerplates.xdo to C:\Downloads\ExportBIP\BalanceLetter.xdoz
>> Command Error: export->exportObject
>> oracle.xdo.webservice.exception.OperationFailedException: PublicReportService::executeDownloadReport Failure: Unable to download Report for [/This is a long folder name that is longer than 50 chars\Boilerplates.xdo] Due to unable to find ReportObject
