Do you see this Windows SQL error message on your screen?
"The global filename characters, * or ?, are entered incorrectly or too many global filename characters are specified. (Code 208)"
Then please follow the steps below to solve that SQL problem.
Here are the steps that a SQL database administrator should take to resolve the Windows error code 208.
The full installation of Windows SQL Server Service Pack 2 should be the first line of defense when these types of errors present themselves. Remember during troubleshooting that these are not actually operating system errors and should not be treated by trying to change a setting on an end-user workstation or by attempting to change settings on the operating system. Work through the SQL database to get the necessary service pack to resolve this error code. Staying current on your SQL service packs and hot fixes will ensure you that your SQL server will avoid these errors in the future. Upgrading to the latest version of SQL may be an alternative that some DBAs will want to consider too.
