InterBase error: Name longer than database column size

Question:I just wrote a long stored procedure with many arguments and get the error message "Name longer than database column size". Do I actually have to reduce the number of arguments by nesting stored procedure calls?
Answer:The error message refers to the name of your stored procedure, not to the number of arguments. In Interbase 5.5 through 6.5 the length of a column name, a table name or stored procedure and probably all other metadata objects is limited to 31 characters.
You cannot work around this limitation, other than renaming your stored procedure.
