FIX: The appID column of the xref_IDXRefData table is limited to 50 characters

This article has been archived. It is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.
In Microsoft BizTalk Server 2004, the cross-referencing database functoids use data from tables that are stored in the BizTalkMgmtDb SQL Server database. One of the tables is the xref_IDXRefData table, and it contains a column that is named appID. The appID column is limited to 50 characters. However, sometimes the limit of 50 characters is not sufficient.
