PQL recognizes an identifier as any sequence of characters that start with a letter, and can include letters, underscores, and numbers. Identifiers are case-insensitive, with some exceptions. Identifiers must start with a letter, and cannot include spaces. You cannot use a reserved word as an identifier, unless you surround it with double quotes, as shown in the following examples.
