Colon in column name

Colon in column name

Colon in column name


We have a problem and I already searched everything I could on it but with no success.
The soultion may be simple but somehow I can't make it work.

We made a windows service that connects to tps files using Softvelocity ODBC driver and send data to our SQL server database.
It was working well until software provider made some changes in tps files. The change is in the name of the columns.

The names of the columns now have a kind of prefix separated with colon (:)

Before: column name was DOKUMENT
Now: column name is SSK:DOKUMENT

Now we got error saying:
System.Data.Odbc.OdbcException (0x80131937): ERROR [S0000] [SoftVelocity Inc.][TopSpeed ODBC Driver]Column not found: Dokument

So instead using just DOKUMENT we tried using:
None of these works!!!

Any help would be appreciated.
