I am using WAMP server 2.0 on Windows 7. Due to Windows being case insenstive in regards to file names, MySQL is forced to treat the table names 'mytable' and 'MyTable' as being the same, which they are not (personal opinion). MySQL is unable due to Windows file naming system to rename tables such as 'mytable' to 'MyTable'. Though perhaps a solitary voice, and if anyone from Microsoft is actually listening, my message to the powers that be in Microsoft, change the file naming convention is Windows to case sensitive. If I have a MySQL table called totalmonthlycarssalesbyvendors, MySQL will not rename it to TotalMonthlyCarSalesByVendor, giving a table exists error. TotalMonthlyCarSalesByVendor is cleaner and shorter than total_monthly_car_sales_by_vendor.
