DISPLAY TABLES Command
Displays names and information about all the tables contained in the current database.
DISPLAY TABLES [TO PRINTER [PROMPT] | TO FILE FileName] [NOCONSOLE]
- TO PRINTER [PROMPT]
- Directs output from DISPLAY TABLES to a printer.
You can include PROMPT to display a Print dialog box before printing starts. Place the PROMPT keyword immediately after TO PRINTER.
- TO FILE FileName
- Directs output from DISPLAY TABLES to the file specified with FileName. If the file already exists and SET SAFETY is ON, Visual FoxPro displays a prompt asking if you want to overwrite the file.
- Suppresses output to the main Visual FoxPro window or to the active user-defined window.
The information returned is a subset of the information shown using DISPLAY STATUS. However, the information displayed using DISPLAY TABLES contains only table-related information and displays the information regardless of whether the tables are open or not.
The following information is displayed:
- Table name
- Table path
