Urgent help please!!!!! Posted in 14th, 09/2005 06:36 by jax100

Somehow I have managed to rename a table using DBManager with a \ character in the title and now (no surprise) DBManager is unable to open any of the functions that call up the table list e.g. view tables/dump/export - it causes a program crash as follows:

DBMANAGERPRO caused an invalid page fault in
module DBMYSQL.DLL at 0167:02407301.

I can query the db ok and can see the table lists however I am unable to use DROP TABLE or ALTER TABLE because of the \ character. I have tried \\ to escape this but does not work. My db is on a hosted server so I am unable to drop the db and start again.

Does anyone have any ideas/suggestions??????????????

Open the console or the query editor and drop the table manually by executing the command:

DROP TABLE `tbl\\something`

You may also try the RENAME TABLE command.

Thanks for getting back to me - unfortunately that did not work - DROP TABLE 'xxx\\xxx'.
I can successfully drop other tables - any other ideas?

In case of interest I am running the 3.03a freeware version - is this something you have fixed in the later edition(s)/do I need the update?

One other thing is when I use the console and type .tables the program crashes but if I use 'show tables' it is OK - ???

Thanks again for replying,

Hi again,

Have tried latest version - no difference...

When I try to drop the table it comes up with 'incorrect table name'

You may need to try using the mysql console for this, although I'm not sure it work. There is a workaround to handle it but that would require manual operations on the server. You may ask the system admin to delete the files from disk. On the other hand if the table is of InnoDB type that should be a problem as the tablespace will still have the data for the table.
Could you do me a favor? I would like to see how the table is dumped. If possible please send us the dump.sql attached for this table only. The reason I'm asking this is that there is a possibility to the name have more than one strange character not visible. In this case I can run some tests to figure that out.

Thanks for keeping an eye on this problem - however in response to your request I am unable to 'dump' from the database as that causes a crash too!

I contacted my host who were very accomodating and they tried a number of consoles to delete it but pretty much had the same effect of locking/crashing the consoles.

Anyway, their techies are looking at it now to see if they can manually remove the files concerned (as you suggested) but as a last resort they are going to drop the db and start again.

Ah well - lesson learned by all!

You get the sense that Pele knows iphone 6 plus protective film what you are going to ask him even before you start to formulate the words. Double Sided Adhesive Perhaps it is just natural intuition, the same instinctive understanding for human behaviouróand how he can use that to his own advantageóthat die cut helped make him the greatest footballer, and the most prolific goalscorer, Stand Up Pouches the sport has ever seen.
