Here's my CREATE TABLE statement:

CREATE TABLE 'volte7' ('Num Days' varchar(20)DEFAULT NULL) ENGINE=InnoDB DEFAULT CHARSET=latin1

I keep getting an error that says something is wrong with my syntax and I can't figure out what it is.

What's wrong?

Two things immediately come to mind.

* Space between varchar(20) and DEFAULT
* I believe that the 'quotes' around object names in MySQL is the back quote (usually the key to the left of 1 on US keyboards), not a regular quote - so ` not '
