[GRASS-user] v.in.db and dbf-tables SQL parser error

Hello Moritz,
aah! Thank you very much - it worked without problems now. I did not know this before (*other* programs do not care about this ;) - maybe it would be reasonable to add a paragraph "requirements for the input table" to the manual page of v.in.db (tablename has to start with a character...)

Best regards,
