    File source | Error due to Dot present in column names

    Shiveeta Mattoo Newbie



      In case a Delimited Flat file , contains a "Dot"character in any of the column names, we get an issue during Virtual Data Base deployment -

      Root cause -

      org.teiid.api.exception.query.QueryParserException: TEIID31100 Parsing error: Encountered "'UTF-8') COLUMNS [*]\"name.full\"[*] STRING," at line 1, column 126.

      Invalid simple identifier format: [name.full]


      The query is : SELECT A."name.full",A."surname" FROM (EXEC tabwithdot.getFiles('tab.csv')) AS F, TEXTTABLE(TO_CHARS(F.file,'UTF-8') COLUMNS "name.full" STRING,"surname" STRING delimiter '    ' quote ' ' HEADER) AS A


      Please note, that although the column name [name.full], is enclosed in Double Quotes, still this issue is observed.

      If there was instead any other special character, that works successfully.


      Please advise if there's any workaorund / way to deal with this ?
