I find this rather strange: normally any DB access layer has no business in changing the case of character data returned from the DB - at least not without explicitly telling it to do so. But you'll probably have better chances getting an answer to this by using a .NET specific forum.   I would guess that someone else must have stumbled across this already because this would not only affect table names but other character data as well.

Kind regards
