ex1:
SQLFieldName ( name_to::name_field )
-> \"name_to\".\"name_field\"
ex2:
SQLFieldName ( name_field )
-> \"name_to\".\"name_field\"
# When TO name is not specified, complemented by current TO name.

This is my Custom Function and I want to edit it

Discuss:

Using quotation only in FQFN sometimes will not work especially when it starts with special characters (ex. _Table::Field or Table::_Field)

I modified your script and replaced the Quote() with "\\\"" from the start and at the end.

From: Quote ( GetValue ( split ; count_split ) )
to: "\\\"" & GetValue ( split ; count_split ) & "\\\""

This is the modified version of your custom function:

The backslash "\" is missing and the original script only quotes the values
which will not work on FQFN start with a special character.

Let (
[
split =
Substitute ( GetFieldName ( Field ) ; "::" ; ¶ ) ;
count_split =
ValueCount ( split ) ;
name_to =
Case (
count_split > 1 ;
"\\\"" & GetValue ( split ; 1 ) & "\\\"" ;
"\\\"" & Get ( LayoutTableName ) & "\\\""
) ;
name_field =
"\\\"" & GetValue ( split ; count_split ) & "\\\""
] ;

name_to & "." & name_field
)

Thanks for comment and my apologies...

Maybe the description which I wrote is not appropriate, but back slash itself is not a big deal.
Name of TOs and name of fields just need to be quoted in calculation and it works fine in query even if TO (field) name is like "_ORDER::__id".
