Vote Fairy

I am the drill instructor for future fairy godparents. Faerie & Nymphs Local 318 renegotiated our contract and we all got a big, fat pay cut! So I was reading the want ads in Faerie Folk Weekly looking for a second job and I came across a listing for a job as the Vote Fairy. It seems that Pair Networks needed someone to give votes to all of the little Monks here at Perl Monks so I took the job.

[Corion]: perldigious: That seems to be more the export and likely it's the recipients of that export that like the titles changes
[Corion]: ... "changed"
[Corion]: I usually expect fixed header names, but am sometimes lenient in the order of columns. But changing the report titles often sounds to me as if you are not the sole consument of the export ;)
[shmem]: perldigious: as always - if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Ther must be a very compelling reason for changing column names in a database. Those are rare.
[Corion]: If you have whitespace in the column names in the database, whap the DBAs ;)
[shmem]: It's common for some vendors to have column names such as WRSTVG or some other such whizzbang, and another table where these names are mapped to something meaningful depending on how you look at the data
