OK, apparently my testing skills weren't as methodical as I thought.

I went back and re-tested and the issue only occurs with STRSQL.

Works fine by specifying the short field names in a query using JDBC (ACS, DBeaver) and probably ODBC as well. Testing shortly.

After a little more testing it appears that if there is a "Heading Line 1" defined for a column that heading gets returned instead of the actual field name in all cases.

Does the field you mention have a heading line 1 label on it ?
