Field naming conventions using SQL server or other main frame databases

3 Comments3 Solutions389 ViewsLast Modified:
What is the advantage (if any) of naming fields in a main frame database i.e. Sql Server, Oracle, etc. upper case vs. lower case or conventional case (MyField)? We have a rather arrogant young engineer trying to convince me it makes a difference. We currently use all upper case. He suggests conventional case. Does it really make a difference??
