naming columns in mysql
I am making a database and i have to have the colum names be exact, but they include "number" and the word "Date" "end"

I believe those can be valid column names but they must be enclosed in backticks in your queries. ie
SELECT `date` FROM `table` WHERE `number` = 1
If you use backticks they will not be interpreted as MySQL literal.
