Filters in pgAdmin

I use PostgreSQL in most of my Django projects. PostgreSQL has a tool called pgAdmin that is invaluable for debugging. pgAdmin allows the user to manually enter filters. The problem is the filter does not naturally handle column names that are capitalized, while Django often creates column names that are capitalized. What to do?

The solution is to put the column name in double quotes:

Job='xyz'    - is Not valid
"Job"='xyz'   - is valid
