    When I try to create a table I get an assign error.

    The assign error occurs when you try to assign a value to a kdb keyword. “type” is a reserved word. Notice your code works when I change that one word.


    q)UK_US_ORDERS:([] date:(); time:(); sym:(); size:(); price:(); TYPE:())
    q)UK_US_ORDERS
    date time sym size price TYPE

    It is possible to workaround this limitation to make your column named type but it would only leave your table extremely hard to query so it is not recommended.
