Title: SQL SELECT fields(F4) problem in V4R3

 In V4R3 SQL, if we take  <F4> On "SELECT fields  . . . . . . ." of SELECT statement
    to get the column descriptions, its giving the following error :

   "No fields available in chosen file or files".

I have tried with different options here and found the following:
If the File Object name is in quotes (" "), then its giving the
above error.
For Ex. If the Object name is F.ILE1 (say), the SQL SELECT statement is

FROM files . . . . . . . . . .  LIB1/"F.ILE1" 
SELECT fields  . . . . . . .  press <F4> here

then its giving the above error. (File name has to be in quotes since it contains '.' in its name.)

Now change object to FILE2. Now the SQL SELECT statement is

FROM files . . . . . . . . . .  LIB1/FILE1 
SELECT fields  . . . . . . .  press <F4> here

its showing the fields.

Thanx in advance
