A table name is a SQL identifier; all identifiers are case-insensitive
unless they are enclosed in double quotes ("). So long as you are
consistent, there is no problem because all unquoted identifiers are
converted to lower case.
It seems that you must have created the table with quotes around its
name CREATE TABLE "SYS_Keyword" (...) ; therefore you must always now
refer to it as "SYS_Keyword" in order to be able to find it.
In general it is a good idea not to try to mix case in identifiers; it
only leads to confusion.
