User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.6; rv:24.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/24.0
Build Identifier:

When my schema name is SP5_db, I can query tables without a prefix, but when I use SP5.table it responds with: "no such schema 'sp5_db'". Note the lower case conversion.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. create new db by running ./
  2. create schema by running mclient -dSP5_db < prep.sql
  3. create table "version" by running mclient -dSP5_db -uSP5_db < version.sql
  4. mclient -dSP5_db -uSP5_db
  5. sql>select * from SP5_db.version ;

Actual Results:

SELECT: no such schema 'sp5_db'

Expected Results:

Same as without prefix:

sql>select * from version;
| name | value |
| revision | 1 |

You need to use double quotes to protect the server from mapping upper and lower case to each other:
select * from "SP5_db".version ;

If this for some reason also doesn't work, you can reopen this bug report.

Yes, quotes do work.

But I use the tab autofill in mclient, and SP5_db is generated without quotes by server or mclient.

select * from vers


select * from SP5_db.version;

Why didn't you say so in the first place! ;-)

So the bug is that mclient should properly quote names it fills in.
