THIS IS DEFINITELY OFF TOPIC. Please don't ask more bash questions here.
Anyway since you have done your noise, here are some answers.
1. To convert to upper case you can use `tr' like this:
TableName=`echo "$2" | tr "[a-z]" "[A-Z]"`
Please note all the " and ` - they are essential.
2. Echo of escaped (backslashed) characters.
Beside the -e argument you can:
2.1 Use /bin/echo
2.2 Set the xpg_echo option (shopt -s xpg_echo)
2.3 Compile bash with --enable-usg-echo-default
Remember in Cygwin sh is not bash (it is ash). You can change this by
removing/renaming sh and sym-linking bash to sh (that's what I do).
I STRONGLY suggest you read the bash man page(s) carefully.
