Use double quotes around the library name.  This is also used when you have
a library, table or column named the same as a reserved word, like select
"GROUP" from custfile...

> Hi,

> I have a problem when using JDBC and SQL to access my AS400 database. The
> problem happens when there is a period in the library name. Eg Library
> TRK1.5B
> 
> An extract of my java code is as follows: 
> // Register Native JDBC Driver and connect to local DB. 
> Class.forName("com.ibm.db2.jdbc.app.DB2Driver"); 
> Connection c = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:db2:*local"); 
> // Run an SQL query on the table. 
> Statement s = c.createStatement(); 
> ResultSet rs = s.executeQuery("SELECT * FROM TRK1.5B.T2USERP ORDER BY
> SRUSER"); 
>          
> When this is run I get the following error message:
> java.sql.SQLException: Numeric constant .5B not valid.? 
> 
> This is because there is a period in the library name and SQL doesn't like
> TRK1.5B.T2USERP 
> If I change the library name to another that has no period eg TRKTEST the
> java program works fine.   
> Any ideas apart from changing the library name on getting round this?
