I have a number of feature classes in an Oracle-backed Enterprise Geodatabase which have an attribute called "AREA" which is type double. All of these feature classes are part of the database user/schema called "AMIS". The problem, is that the attribute is automatically getting renamed to the AMIS.FeatureClassName.AREA. For example, in the feature class called CAMP_AREA, the AREA field is getting called "AMIS.CAMP_AREA.AREA". I have tried deleting the field and re-adding "AREA" again, and it just defaults to "AMIS.CAMP_AREA.AREA".
I've checked the list of Oracle Reserved Words, and AREA is not one of them.
I have actually also seen this behaviour on a Microsoft SQL Server-backed Geodatabase with the same results.
What is going on here?
