Field names must conform to SQL Server identifier naming conventions. For more information about SQL Server identifier naming conventions, see "Using Identifiers" in SQL Server Books Online.

Important  The following fields are used internally by Notification Services. You must not create notification fields with these names:

  • DeliveryChannelName
  • DeliveryStatusCode
  • DeviceAddress
  • DeviceName
  • DeviceTypeName
  • DistributorWorkItemId
  • ExpirationTime
  • LinkNotificationId
  • NotificationId
  • NotificationBatchId
  • SentTime
  • SubscriberId
  • SubscriberLocale

If you update a <FieldName> element, NSControl Update deletes and re-creates the notification class to which it corresponds. This includes dropping and re-creating the SQL Server tables used by this notification class.

Important  If you update a <FieldName> element, any data existing in the original SQL Server tables is permanently deleted.
