InterBase error: Name longer than database column size


I just wrote a long stored procedure with many arguments and get the error message "Name longer than database column size". Do I actually have to reduce the number of arguments by nesting stored procedure calls?


The error message refers to the name of your stored procedure, not to the number of arguments. In Interbase 5.5 through 6.5 the length of a column name, a table name or stored procedure and probably all other metadata objects is limited to 31 characters.

You cannot work around this limitation, other than renaming your stored procedure.
