  • It is not possible in the current release (2012/2014).

    Since the name is used in staging table as column name, and there is a hard limitation of length as 128.

    In SQL vnext release, we are considering to lose the name length limitation to 100 and as well as add DisplayName which supports up to 250 with supports for all special characters.

  • Sure that is a possible "thing" but in no way supported from what I can imagine.

    You are the changing an internal part of the system. ...
