Great minds.

I can use the short names in the query, but the result-set beings back the alternate names.

I can work around it if needed, but it seems odd that even when specifying short names I get the long alternate names back.

Want Short Column Names


I assume you are running this statement via ODBC, JDBC etc. which is why it defaults to the long names. I haven't tested this, but I think you have to specify the short names in your select statement rather than use *. You wouldn't need the AS clause. So, just SELECT FIELD1, FIELD2, etc..
