I have a legacy DB2 table which has a special character like '#' in the column name like ACCT#. I am using derby for in-memory unit testing. Derby does not allow me to have a special character like '#' in the column name in my create table statement.  Is there anyway to escape the special character so that I can have special characters in column names.
I would really appreciate any help in this regard.
