Goal

Why are there extremely long Column Names in Browse Database Schema (From Data Manager, select File - Browse - Database Schema), usually starting with "FK", which do not match the column names that are in the database? Most of the column names in the Browse Database Schema match the database column names exactly. Why is there an exception?
