SQL Editor introduces spaces in the database names

Hi all,

I have connected metabase to bigquery. The UI queries run without problems, however once I open the SQL editor, metabase introduces spaces before and after the ` delimiter. Because of this, the query fails due to a name error. Removing the spaces solves the issue.

Any idea how to fix this issue?

as we don't know which version you're running, we can't help you unfortunately. I would suggest you check the version first.

Also: try copying the syntax that we generate on GUI queries as there could be a problem with quoting in different DB engines
