Once upon a time there was a group of people who liked to burn stuff. They burned stuff in parties at Baker Beach. Eventually, the parties grew too large, so the people decided to incorporate a city in the middle of the Black Rock Desert in Nevada. This city only has inhabitants for one week every year. In one week the city is built up, populated, and then burned. And the following year it starts all over again. This is a picture of me in this city from last August.

There's more information about this city here.

[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
[shmem]: afair in SAP that occurs all the time
