Silverstripe Data Object specify table name

Go to End

Is there a way to override the default behavior of SS Data Objects such that when I assign a static $table_name property to my DataObject the dev/build does not create a table name with the DO name like it normally does?

For example I have this very small Data Object

    class SalesRep extends DataObject {

        private static $table_name = 'tbl_users';


I am trying to prevent creation of table salesrep on dev/build and also I would like the ORM to know that when I do a $Model->write(); I'm writing to the table tbl_users instead of table salesrep
