Welcome to this week’s From the Forum. In this post, we highlight a few Corona Community Forums posts that cover important topics.

All I want for Christmas…

Or Winter holiday of your choosing… In this thread, several users come up with various wish lists they have for the holidays. Maybe you can help make someone’s wish come true even if it’s just voting for a feature at http://feedback.coronalabs.com.

Dynamic database tables

The original poster needed to name and create SQL table names on the fly. Community developer hero @develephant comes to the rescue with an easy-to-use line of code to create the SQL to make these dynamically named tables.

Letters to numbers

The original poster needed to convert letters to numbers. Several Corona community developers jumped in with different techniques to make this happen.
