When I execute a SELECT statement I get a -206 error, here is the message:

[SQL0206] Column DUEDAY4WEEKENDACTION not in specified tables.

Because the column name is actually "dueDay4WeekendAction"

Notice that the variable name has been upper cased.

Because it wasn't enclosed in quotes when you specified it in the SELECT statement.

I am guessing that the field - DUEDAY4 is being used, not the alternative
name dueDay4WeekendAction.

Why do you think that? If you'd specified the short name it would have been used.

Does it have to be enclosed in double quotes in the SQL?

Yes (if by "it" you mean the alternative name).

Does that make sense?


If so, how do you tell the SQL engine to use the alternative name when
creating the connection. I looked at the properties to include in the
JDBC URL and didn't see anything.

I don't think you can set a property for this. If you want to use the short names then just specify them on the SQL statement.
