  • Some DBs would return that as "Table.Column", unless it's DBI always turning it into just "Column".

    I agree on the principle though - SELECT * should probably only be used in the SQL-Shell for testing stuff out.
    • Ah, I can see how that would be a problem, if you wound up with two fields in different tables with the same name. But I'm used to the syntax of NATURAL JOIN and didn't look up the syntax of LEFT JOIN to see if it removes the duplicated column from the output or not.
