DBConnect MS SQL reuse same field names in query


I have an issue where a field in the database I connect to has quotation characters. Previously I have used Replace function in the sql editor:
Replace ("Closure Text", '"', '%') AS "Closure Text",
this works for Oracle SQL database.

When I come to use the same command for an MS SQL database I get an error:

"java.lang.IllegalStateException: Column name conflicted, please set shortnames option to false and retry"

The query below works if I give new field names but I really want to use the same field names.

isnull(Workgroup, 'Blank') as Workgroup2,
Replace (last_action, '"', '%') AS last_action,
Replace (Problem, '"', '%') AS Problem
FROM "OSMQ"."dbo"."OSMQ_TicketData"

where (Ticket_Status='Cancelled'or Ticket_Status='Closed' or Ticket_Status = 'Solved/Not Closed') and (Date_Closed >= CONVERT(DATETIME, CONVERT(DATE, getdate()))-1 and Date_Closed < CONVERT(DATETIME, CONVERT(DATE, getdate())));

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
I am using SPLUNK Enterprise 8.0.3 & DBConnect 3.2.0
