Thank you for your answer.
I couldn't agree more.
Thank you as well for your examples.

This database isn't well designed at all. It doesn't respect the first normal form.
This is the Rollbase database.
Rollbase is an application builder tool which helped us design our application on top of it.

Sadly, the database is designed by Rollbase and is part of Rollbase and we can't change its design.
The only adjustments Rollbase allow us to do is to add columns. Changing the database behaviour would imply that the Rollbase code isn't working anymore(It is compiled code that we cannot change).

We have already asked Rollbase to redesign the database to avoid such problems in the future for other customers.

But for now, we have many customers in production using the app. We need to be able to fix this problem as soon as possible.
The only way we found is to change the file format to Barracuda.
And we can't seem to be able to do the SQL requests which would allow us to do that.

Kind regards,
