Alias columns don't show alias name in dbVis 9.1.5

Just upgraded from 8.0.9 to 9.1.5. My query when executed in 8.0.9 shows aliases in the results grid...in 9.1.5 the columns retain their actual column name. select a.claim_id, e.name as AIAPOS34 from fedicws.clm_claim a join fedicws.clm_detail b on a.claim_id = b.claim_id join fedicws.adm_detail_defn c on b.detail_defn_id = c.detail_defn_id join fedicws.clm_detail_data d on b.detail_id = d.detail_id join fedicws.adm_list_l e on d.detail_list_id = e.list_id and c.detail_name = 'AIAPOS34' This returns 2 columns....claim_id and name. In 8.0.9 it would return 2 columns...claim_id and AIAPOS34. I found a post that referenced useOldAliasMetadataBehavior = true setting. I added that setting to the driver properties and it didn't change anything. I am using : Database Type = DB2 LUW Driver (JDBC) = DB2 Database URL jdbc:db2://.... My connection properties: Database Product Name : DB2/AIX64 Database Product Version : SQL09055 Driver Name : IBM Data Server for JDBC and SQLJ Driver Version : 4.15.82 Any suggestions on other things that I can change to get the aliased column names back? Thanks KS

Re: Alias columns don't show alias name in dbVis 9.1.5
Keith, Sorry for the confusion... Check the following: In Tool Properties and the General / Grid category there is a "Show Column Alias as Grid Column Label" setting. Make sure it is enabled and try again. Regards Roger
