Max length of database/table/column/user/group name

Question & Answer


Question

What is the maximum length for a database/table/column/user/group name?

Answer

For systems running IBM Netezza Performance Server 3.1 and later, the maximum length for a database/table/column/user/group is 128 characters.

The first character of a name must be alphabetic. If the name is more than the system limit, the system truncates the additional characters.
