            Oh heavens, that seems like a very dangerous route to follow! IMHO key words are "sacred" and should always be avoided for the sanity of future developers and maintainers!

            As you are using quotes, the standard dictionary views might accept the names as quoted strings and give the meta-data back on request, although I'm sure Oracle corp would not support that kind of thing. They may not be able guarantee that the DD will give the meta-data back, even if you can get it into the DD in the first place.

Subject: create table issue

Hi gurus,  

Normally oracle says we can not create tables using the keywords but when one issues CREATE TABLE "INSERT" (col datatype);", it gets created. It can always be referenced and other tasks can be done easily on the table but the table name must always be in double quotes. My question is how oracle identifies these tables and where does makes the entry of such tables for regonising? If I don know about this double quotes and the table has been created using double quotes then how to find such objects and from where?????

Thanks & Regards,
T. Onkar Nath
