IdTrxFrom is a string of characters that provides the “From” list for DDL Identifier Translation mappings. These mappings filter/modify valid SQL identifier characters when translating SQL identifiers into Objects identifiers. When converting an SQL identifier to an Objects identifier at DDL runtime, the characters in the “From” string are converted to the characters in the “To” string.

For further details, see Identifiers. Also see the parameter IdTrxTo.
