# 252 BDE Database Transfer Utility Not Dealing with Invalid Field Names Properly

Is there a real reason for requiring indexnames to begin with an alpha character? The conversion from PDOX to DBISAM doesn't mind and everything works fine. But in the database utility gets hungup on insisting the index name begins with an alpha character. I had to use Ctrl+Alt+Del to end the program because I wasn't going to change the index name.

Comments Comments and Workarounds
The BDETRAN utility has been updated to properly trap for invalid field names and prefix them with an alpha character.
