Tables with names that begin with the pound sign (#) are temporary tables. You cannot create other types of objects with names that begin with the pound sign.
Adaptive Server performs special operations on temporary table names to maintain unique naming on a per-session basis. Long temporary table names are truncated to 13 characters (including the pound sign); short names are padded to 13 characters with underscores (_). A 17-digit numeric suffix that is unique for an Adaptive Server session is appended.
