Object Names in 602SQL

A 602SQL object can be a table, query, diagram, procedure, etc. Each object has a name that is used to access the object. The following rules apply to object names:

You can bypass the first two rules when you enclose the name in grave accent characters "`" when referring to this object (e.g. `My new table#3`). Grave accents may never be part of an object name. Some client interfaces may have trouble handling objects with these names.

The object name is an integral part of the object definition stored in the system tables: TABTAB (tables), USERTAB (users and groups) and OBJTAB (other objects).

Database names and remote server names are stored in the registry (Windows) or in an INI file (Linux). The constraints described above are not used here (only uniqueness preservation).
