I am sure this will be one of many responses…

If you create objects with Doubles quotes around the name, you can use spaces and mixed case. Please, don’t ever…

Subject: Odd table name


We have a 9i system and I came across a table like this:

SQL> select owner, object_name, object_type, status from dba_objects where object_name like 'WHI%'; OWNER OBJECT_NAME OBJECT_TYPE STATUS
--------------- ------------------------- ------------------ -------

ABCDEFG         WHI Unique                TABLE              VALID
SQL> Never seen any table with a space in the name. Has anyone seen similar stuff? Why would the third party vendor name this way. I have to double quote the name to query and desc.
