 I have been trying to read a dataset which has spaces in column names using
dbGetQuery from RJDBC.

* dataFrame<-dbGetQuery(conn,"select 'Sepal Length','Sepal Width' from
The resulting dataframe contains column names as 

"*Sepal.Length" "Sepal.Width" *

But i would like to maintain the spaces in column names as it is.Is there
any method is R similar to check.names=FALSE , which can be used in
dbGetQuery for maintaining the spaces in column names.

Thanks for your help.
