You may experience the following problem in Microsoft Business Solutions - Navision. You receive the following error message when you rename a company while the Fin.stx file is enabled for double-byte characters:
[ Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]Either the parameter @objname is ambiguous or the claimed @objtype (INDEX) is wrong.
This problem occurs because the following statement is sent to the computer that is running Microsoft SQL Server. The statement is sent when you rename a company in a Microsoft Navision database while the Fin.stx file is enabled for double-byte characters.
[sp_rename] '"CRONUS International Ltd_$17$0"."CRONUS International Ltd_$17$0_hlp_idx"', 'ふよや$17$0_hlp_idx', 'INDEX'
The following is the correct statement.
[sp_rename] N'"CRONUS International Ltd_$17$0"."CRONUS International Ltd_$17$0_hlp_idx"', N'ふよや$17$0_hlp_idx', 'INDEX'
The statement must contain the "N" character for double-byte characters to be considered.
