Subject Re: Column names with spaces
Date Sun, 13 Apr 2008 20:40:35 GMT
I would use the torque-generator to migrate the database to a new schema
where column names with spaces don't exist. Then, I would use that
database instead. Takes approximately 10 minutes to do.

Is there a way to setup a database specific syntax for column names. So in MySQL it would
be "`" or in MSSQL/Sybase it would be "[" and "]".
