So I'm probably not going to actually help but I know for accounts and passwords I've dealt with in the past it's always a space at the end, you could try that.

Joe,

I saw this same thing a while back. I too thought I had lost my ability to count. If the names at the tops of the columns in the data table are over 8 characters, you will get the same error. Shorten the column names and the warning will go away.

The wording on the warning needs to be changed.

I'm trying to ship these, so I did a DataXport compatibility test before I went renaming all the columns in all my Data Tables (I tend to be verbose with column names).

So I set up DataXport to get the data from one of the tables and got this from DataXls

I believe you. 

But this data shows that the Visilogic warning is bogus.  DataXport worked just fine with longer column names.

Creators?

Hi Joe, what do previous versions say?  I have many column names way over 8 characters without issues.  I'm still on 9.8.31.

And what happens if the only upper case in the table names is the first letter, with the rest lowercase?  I seem to recall having an issue with this once.

cheers,

Aus
