How do I overcome ORA-00972: identifier is too longby Bashirjulian (Initiate)
|on Jul 18, 2001 at 07:07 UTC||Need Help??|
Bashirjulian has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Hi All, I am connecting to Oracle 8, from a sparcstation with Perl version 5.005_02.
I am trying to run a SELECT statement but I get an error that the sixth field in my SELECT statement is too long.
I know that this particular error indicates that my field name is more than 30 characters long,
But the problem is that the value on the DB is that long and there is no option to change the name on the DB.
How do I overcome this problem.
Thank you to al the Gurus who reply,
