I have some sort of wierd problem as I was playing with CQL. CQL works well with given layer but when i try with layer loaded from mapinfo or some views then it does not work. As in the picture when I click the feature it shows the column called NAME but when I query using it (or other column) generates error like:

Property 'NAME' could not be found in DISTRICT_BND

Why is the query not recognizing my column?

I am using sql server and found that the column name is case sensitive. May be this might be helpful for anyone that is having the same problem but I don't know why ?
