Hi,

You can create an alias like this :

SELECT
  MyTable.From AS MyAlias
FROM
  MyTable

Maybe you will have to use quotes like meikl mentioned, then it should look like :

SELECT
  MyTable."From" AS MyAlias
FROM
  MyTable

It is also possible that the AS keyword can be omitted.

Try it out and tell me what happens.

Best regards,
