adding sqlshow results inthis

. odbc load, dsn("accra") table("annual_employment_control_totals") sqlshow
SELECT * FROM "annual_employment_control_totals"
The ODBC driver reported the following diagnostics
[MySQL][ODBC 3.51 Driver][mysqld-5.1.48-community]You have an error in your
SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for
the right syntax to use near '"annual_employment_control_totals"' at line 1
SQLSTATE=42000

but executing the second command seems to work

. odbc load, dsn("accra") exec("SELECT * FROM annual_employment_control_totals
> ;")


the data is there, but wondering what is going on and if I should be
concerned about it
