A_SYB_MAX_COLUMNS indicates the maximum number of columns Acu4GL allows in a table.

Sybase places a limit on the number of columns per table. The Acu4GL product adheres to this limit, but sometimes it cannot accurately count how many columns a table contains (because a column has been added to a table without the Acu4GL product’s knowledge). This variable enables the developer to set the Acu4GL product’s upper bound. You might want to try reducing the upper bound if you discover that a table cannot be created for some reason. By reducing the upper bound, you allow for uncountable columns and thus may be able to prevent this problem.

If Sybase increases the maximum number of columns allowed per table (in a future release of the Sybase product), you can increase the value of this variable to take advantage of the new limit.

The A_SYB_MAX_COLUMNS variable has a default value of 250.
