    Unanswered: "NUMBER" as column name not allowed?


    I'm migrating from MS SQL to Oracle and when I try to create a table with a column named "NUMBER" I get an error message.
    I tried to rename from "NUMBER" to "NUMERO" and it worked.
    So I think oracle doesn't let me use "NUMBER" as column name, right?

    You cannot used reserved words as column names. I would highly suggest coming up with a much more descriptive term like all_numbers, number_lookup...etc.
