Cannot create logins containing a hyphen (-).


You are able to create a SQL Azure login that contains a hyphen but you are unable to then create a database login using the same username. I believe this is due to the CREATE USER statement in code not enclosing the username within square brackets.

I have the same problem with usernames with a "." in them.

The fix is easy.

All places where the user name is uses, enclose with "[" and "]"

Example: DROP USER [" + username + "]"

I have submittet a codechange to address the issue with "-" i have not tested it for "." as that was not with in my scope, but as i just added the [ ] around the UserName and Login in the sql i think it will address both issues.
