We have an external table that reads from a datafile just fine in Oracle 9i. However we upgraded our test environment to 10G and now it complaints about the column name "LANGUAGE". It expects double quotes.

Changing the column name to language1(or something) fixes the problem, but I am wondering why we need to do this.
