HOPEFULLY an easy question for would I create an alias in an ASP page to access an Oracle database?


Set objConn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
objConn.Open "dsn=OracleDSN;uid=user;pwd=password;"
Set objRs = objConn.Execute("SELECT desc_e AS English Description FROM descriptions")

The 'English Description' part is what I want aliased....more to make the table headers easier to read...

I've tried using double single quotes (' ') double quotes (") escape characters(/  \) and nothing seems to want to work :(  I've used the latest Oracle ODBC driver, as well as the Microsoft Oracle ODBC driver...neither one worked.

Any other suggestions??  Thanks in advance...
