Informix Naming Conventions
Table and column names must begin with a letter or an underscore followed by letters, numbers, or underscores. However, if the name appears within quotes and the PRESERVE_TAB_NAMES option has been set to PRESERVE_TAB_NAMES=YES when applicable, it may start with any character.
Table and column names can contain up to 18 characters.
