Size of Filed Name in SAP 2005

Former Member

The size of a field name in sap 2005 is now 18 characters, with the "U_" this is 20. This design can also been found in table definition of the CUFD table (AliasID nvarchar(18)).

However when you define a UDO on top of some usertables you cannot add columns with a column name bigger then 10 characters (including the "U_") to the default forms. This design can also been found in the table definition of the UDO3 tables (ColAlias nvarchar(10))

Can anyone explain this (poor) design?

The change in the size of the field name (from 10 to 18) is more or less a "bug".

Therefore it is not yet reflected in UDO3 etc.

Sorry for the inconvenience!

PS: I think we should keep the change (10 => 18) though - and reflect it in UDOs ASAP...
