  • Characters allowed in object names include uppercase A through Z, lowercase a through z, digits 0 through 9, and the special characters hyphen or dash, - , period, . , and underscore, _ .
    • Do not start an object name with a hyphen.
    • Do not start or end an object name with a period.
  • Names for servers used with SAP systems should be restricted to nine characters.
  • On Windows systems, object names must be unique and case-insensitive (object name is the same as OBJECT NAME).
