Thread: Table names showing up in lower case

    I have some table names showing up in lower case
    when I issue a select from dba_tables or dba_objects.
    When I try and select data from them i get an error
    saying they are unrecognized. Any ideas. How does
    a table or object get created as case sensitive in the
    database? I thought it forced all object names to
    upper case.

    If you have object names in lower case, use " around the name:

    SELECT * FROM "your_table";

    This is also the way to create (and drop) objects in lower case.
    CREATE TABLE "tab"
    ( col NUMBER

    DROP TABLE "tab";

    As fas as i know tables migrated from Access can get created in lower case.
