Dear Customer,

The problem you reported lies with the ODBC text driver (not msdasql) that has an issue with the column aliases. The driver accepts the aliases if the ‘AS’ key word is used.

As you observed, this fails:

'SELECT `Tbl1002`.`TEST TEST TEST` `Col1004` FROM `d:\temp`\`aaa.txt` `Tbl1002`')

However, this succeeds:

'SELECT `Tbl1002`.`TEST TEST TEST` AS `Col1004` FROM `d:\temp`\`aaa.txt` `Tbl1002`')

We will close this bug and re-assign the issue to the appropriate team in the Windows group to see if they can get the provider to support the aliases without the AS keyword (provider ships with Windows not SQL).

Thanks again for reporting this issue. Please don't hesitate to follow-up with me if you have additional questions.

Thanks for your feedback. MSDASQL ships as part of Windows not SQL. We will take a quick look at the bug to validate that the scenario is supported, if yes, then I will move the bug to Windows.
