Well, you pretty much have to get used to it.  Sometimes, MS Query
'helps' you out by parsing and rewriting your query, especially if you
have parameter variables in your query.  In this case you are limited to
the reduced set of functions and operators that MS query understands.  I
have no clue why MS has not fixed this to allow excel to send SQL
directly to the server (one workaround is to manually insert the query
into the save file).

update pg_class set relname = lower(relname) :-). <-- note, I am not
suggesting you actually do this.
