I'm on ODS10 using Firebird 0.9.4 and have not needed to add any "'s to get my
original Interbase 5.0 stuff working. This job went into production in 1998 and
I have only just got round to fixing some 'idiosyncracies' ( bugs - but they
have lived with them for 3 years! ), and moved it from BDE to IBO.

I had hoped to put it over to IBO4 before making the new version live, but there
are too many problems coming from a change between 3.6 and 4 so it will be 3.6Dg
for some time ( another 3 years? ).

I understood that the "'s were only required for field names, and it was only a
TYPE field that I have had to change so far. All the rest has been fine.
