I appreciate the suggestions to just rename the columns, but that's not really an option. The reason I'm dealing with this craptastic design is because I'm currently in the middle of re-writing it. Believe me, the new database has sensible names.
In the meantime, this Access database is 'production' and I can't alter it. I'm trying to write some routines to pull all the data out of this database so I can load it effectively into the new one. I need to be able to programatically suck all the data out and load the new database at the drop of a hat. My comfort-zone is *nix, so I'm already dealing with a bout of hives being in Windows to get to the data. I was hoping some of you that spend more time in Windows could tell me to just set the 'do what I want' flag or something and it'd work. (Yes, wishful thinking. :) )
So, let me get the only workable hack straight (psuedo code):
Is that right?
I used to drive a Heisenbergmobile, but every time I looked at the speedometer, I got lost.
