Spanning a long object name over multiple lines in a query

To continue a statement that contains a long object name on the next line, use double quotation marks.

A single SQL query line is limited to 79 bytes. When any part of an object name (the location, authorization ID, or the object name itself) is continued on a new line, that part of the name must be delimited by double quotation marks. The following figure shows an example of a long object name that spans two lines. The name is qualified with an authorization ID that also spans two lines.
