Does anyone know if there is a limit on how many characters an identifier can be in MS SQL-Server 6.5? I'm working with SQL-Server 7 and some of the constraints ar getting quite long names like 40 or 50 characters. Will these work against SQL Server 6.5?

I seem to remember something about the maximum allowed length beeing shorter in version 6.5

Thansk for your help.

SQL 6.5 states that identifiers can be no longer than 30 characters.
There are also some other rules:
* may contain numbers, chars, and symbols
* must begin with a letter or underscore
* no spaces (unless quoted identifier)

Hope this helps.
