To exit the Update Space utility, type q or quit with no semicolon terminator, on the command line.

Non-standard database names that contain special characters must be enclosed within double quotation marks. Special characters are most punctuation characters and whitespace characters. The delimiting double quotation marks are not counted as part of the name length, and are not stored in the Data Dictionary tables.

To include a double quotation mark character as part of a database name, precede it with another double quotation mark character.

For example:

Desired Database Name Required Update Space Notation
Current Salary "Current Salary"
D ' Augusta "D ' Augusta"
db1 db @#$% "db1 db @#$%"
db1."db2 "db1.""db2"
Db!@     "" "Db!@      """""
