    It depends on who is going to use the database. If you are the only user, I would call it something like "DB1F". If others use it, how about "DB_foreign_companies". The normal convention among database developers is to call a database "DB". A major consideration is the database you are going to use and if there are limits on the number of characters you may use in a title.

    Thank you Gillnetter.

    In fact, other (domestic) companies are going to use this database.

    It has to be a rather "complete" title (says my manager...) What do think about "Database for export market watch"?

    Thanks a lot Gillnetter

    That is meaningless to me. What is the purpose of the word "watch"?
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    Ask your manager what name he wants.
    Please do not edit your question after it has received a response. Such editing can make the response hard for others to understand.
