Goal




Replication from a SQL*Server database to an Oracle database fails with -

"ORA-00972: identifier is too long"


The SQL*Server table has column names longer than 32 characters. Oracle column names cannot be longer 30 characters.
Is there any workaround to increase this limit on column name on the Oracle side?
