We are trying to connect to an SQL Server database from out ABL-Session (10.1C) on Unix. The database is available through DataServer.
The problem is that the databasename is 12 characters long, and there is no way we could change that. So when trying to connect we get error: ** Your database name is longer than 11 characters. (448).
The error is of course correct, but is there any way to work around this issue? As mentioned changing the name of the DB is not an option.
No. There is no workaround for this issue. OE uses the database name to construct the process name for the servers (process names can be a max of 12 characters), and hence requires the database names to be a maximum length of 11 characters.
