    I'M CURRENTLY TESTING A REPLICATION PRODUCT ON ORACLE 8I. ONE SYSTEM HAS THE PERSONAL EDITION AND THE OTHER HAS ORACLE 8I ENTERPRISE EDITION.

    WHEN ATTEMPTING TO MAP TABLES IN THE REPLICATION SOFTWARE I DISCOVERED THAT SOME OF MY TABLE NAMES AND COLUMN NAMES WERE ABBREVIATED TO 10 CHARACTERS OR LESS .

    THEN IT DAWNED ON ME THAT ORACLE 8I PERSONAL ED WAS PROBABLY 16BIT AND THAT WAS CAUSING THE PROBLEM.

    IS THERE SCRIPT OR SOMETHING THAT I CAN RUN THAT WILL ALLOW LONG FILENAMES ON ORACLE 8I PERSONAL EDITION WITHOUT REINSTALLING ORACLE. I WOULD USE ORACLE ENTERPRISE ON THIS SYSTEM BUT IT DON'T HAVE ENOUGH RESOURCES TO SUPPORT IT

    "THIS IS JUST A TEST BOX I'M USING".

    HELP

    If possible, send to me the steps you used to configure this envoronment. I have the same (or as like as) environment, as described above:

    Server: Oracle 8i Standard Edition, release 8.1.5 in one HP
    Station: PO8i release 8.1.6 in Windows 98

    "THIS IS JUST A TEST BOX I'M USING".

    I have a same environment for testing pourposes as like yours, too...
