Table name of more than 32 caracters

Hi,

I know that table name have a maximum of 32 caracters but I want to know if there is a way to avoid this limitation.

My problem is that I need to import (with a libname) an access bd with table name of 37 caracters. Because the name is too long I cannot see the table in SAS. Here's an example of what I do :

libname tbAccess "Z:\2009\Fissuration1\dt85\KronosData\dt85.mdb";

/* Table name example : Fac_090801_0728_0001502135_2(1)_acgps */

Thanks.

Try to create a query with a shorter name which just does select * from original table, and use that in SAS instead.
