i have problem with the following code (I'm using sqlQuery function from 
RODBC package):
eval(parse(text="g_1 <- sqlQuery(cnn_1, \"select aa from 

I get the error message:
"[RODBC] ERROR: Could not SQLExecDirect"
"S0002 208 [Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]Invalid object 
name 'bb.cc\dd.ee'."

It seems that R is replacing square brackets that are needed for 
database to execute query.

How can I force R to change its behavior and leave square brackets 

Any ideas appreciated.
