Hi,

I have a requirement where i should give a column name more than 30 characters.


Example:

SQL> select cust_code from ar_cust where rownum<=1;

CUST_CODE
----------
03004009

SQL> select cust_code abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz1234 from ar_cust where rownum<=1;

ABCDEFGHIJ
----------
03004009

SQL> select cust_code abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz12345 from ar_cust where rownum<=1;
select cust_code abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz12345 from ar_cust where rownum<=1
                 *
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-00972: identifier is too long


SQL> select cust_code as abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz12345 from ar_cust where rownum<=1;
select cust_code as abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz12345 from ar_cust where rownum<=1
                    *
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-00972: identifier is too long



is there any way i can do this.

please guide me.

In short: No and you shouldn't. You can add a column comment if you feel that a column name on it's own is not clear.

No you can not and you shouldn't. No "if this" or "but that". You can NOT do that. Plain and simple.

Well, there's that ignore all messages by this user link. Perhaps they ("someone") pressed it frequently in the past, but they've chosen wrong people to ignore. Now they see only a few posts, written by other users (who are still not on their ignore list), but that confuses the rest of you.

Or is this just another conspiracy theory?
"No message body"? Who deleted my body? OraFAQ did!
