Object names are always stored in the data dictionary in UNICODE.
Specification of object names is subject to these character usage rules:
- The rules are based on Object Naming Controls, which define allowable characters.
- You can specify an object name as a regular identifier, that is, without quotation mark delimiters, if the name uses only characters in the current character repertoire.
- You can specify an object name as a delimited identifier, using characters outside the current character repertoire, by enclosing the name in quotations marks.
- Certain characters are explicitly disallowed from appearing in object names.
