All objects in the Building Operation database has to have a name. Building Operation is case-sensitive and differentiates between upper and lowercase characters. Two objects cannot be named in the same way in the same folder even if the objects are of different types. For example, you cannot create an alarm named Building A and a graphic named Building A in the same folder. However, if you name the graphic Building a, with a lowercase a, you can create it in the same folder as the alarm object Building A.
The following characters are not allowed in object names in Building Operation.
White space is not allowed in the beginning or the end of an objects name.
. (period) is not allowed in the beginning of an objects name.
There is no limitation of how many characters an object name can have. However, some field devices retain their character limitations when they are added to Building Operation database.
