How to turn off ADO/Access  Case Sensitive Field Names?

I developed an application using case insensitive field names VB/ADO/Jet4.  When I switch to another regional setting, example Turkey, my Field Titles become case sensitive!  I tried to use the Locale Setting (1033-general) in the connect string, but that doesnt work.


Is there any way to turn this Field Title case sensitivity off so that my program can run without many field name changes?

Thanks for any help, Greg

not sure if this is going to help, but when you doing comparisons convert all string fields to upper/lower.

e.g.

if (lcase(rsRec.Fields("FieldName").value) = lcase(txtField.text)) then '...

I know you've probably thought of this and it may not be the answer you are wanting to hear, but one of reasons that Oracle doesn't have this issue is because all columns are CAPITALIZED... I would suggest doing this if possible so you wouldn't have to worry about the case issue quickly.

Not sure on the other problem why specifying region specific but it could be because of the language itself.  

But hope this "suggestion" helps.

Well,  The program is written in locale 1033, the database was created in locale 1033.  It's just the ADO or OLE layer that is switching the way it is interpreting database information.  I am looking for a way to force locale interpretation.

Thanks, Greg

Problem Resolution:

The 'i' character in Turkey is case sensitive.  Making sure that all table/column references with words with an 'i' character match chase delt with the problem.

See microsoft article:
