Subject Re:OT: 257 metadata changes (was: [IBO] Interbase / Delphi stored procedure)
Author Christian Gutter

is it every 256th metadata change (in general) or
can each object be changed 256 times until you have
to backup?

I have heard about this issue and I thought it was
referring to each object.

And what happens if you do 257 changes?
Database corruption?
IB retires and goes home?
