Steve, I don't know what Gmail did to my reply, everything above "Show
quoted text" was deleted. Sorry about that.

Original reply was:

Steve, SQL::Abstract does quote columns and tables for you. It's just that
quote_char is empty by default. To change it from DBIx::Class you probably
need to have a look at this section from

Specifies what characters to use to quote table and column names. If you use
this you will want to specify
name_sep<http://search.cpan.org/perldoc?name_sep>as well.

quote_char expects either a single character, in which case is it is placed
on either side of the table/column, or an arrayref of length 2 in which case
the table/column name is placed between the elements.

For example under MySQL you'd use quote_char =3D> '`', and user SQL Server
you'd use quote_char =3D> [qw/[ ]/].
Hope that helps!
Cheers, Ze
