Teradata SQL Analyser display problem

Teradata SQL Analyser display problem

I'm new to Teradata, and I'm having a very strange problem with the Teradata SQL Analyzer.  When my SQL DML executes, in the Answerset window instead of displaying the column names it displays alphabet letters.

For example, if I execute:

select col1, col2, col3, col4 from table_name

then in the Answerset pane, the result displays:

A  B  C  D  

instead of

col1 col2 col3 col4

And if my query contains 26 columns, then I get every A thru Z.  

In the Answerset options I've tried both 'display column titles' and 'display column names'.  Neither of them change it.

Thanks for any help.


RE: Teradata SQL Analyser display problem

To fix this problem, I had to unistall and reinstall all of the Teradata software, and I mean all of it.  From the Window's Control Panel, I removed these objects:

OLE DB Provider for Teradata
ODBC Driver for Teradata
Teradata Administrator 7.2
Teradata GSS Client nt-i386 6.2
Teradata SQL Assistant 7.2

before reinstalling.

RE: Teradata SQL Analyser display problem

I have seen this happening when there's a comment on top of the select ... ie something like this ..


-- my comment
SELECT col1, col2
from mytable
