SQLColumns

The sqlcolumns statement returns a set of fields describing the columns of an ODBC or OLE DB data source, to which a connect has been made.

Syntax:  

SQLcolumns

 

The fields can be combined with the fields generated by the sqltables and sqltypes commands in order to give a good overview of a given database. The twelve standard fields are:

TABLE_QUALIFIER

TABLE_OWNER

TABLE_NAME

COLUMN_NAME

DATA_TYPE

TYPE_NAME

PRECISION

LENGTH

SCALE

RADIX

NULLABLE

REMARKS

For a detailed description of these fields, see an ODBC reference handbook.

Example:  

Connect to 'MS Access 7.0 Database; DBQ=C:\Course3\DataSrc\QWT.mbd';

SQLcolumns;

Note: Some ODBC drivers may not support this command. Some ODBC drivers may produce additional fields.
