LIST TABLES Command

Visual Studio .NET 2003

Displays without pausing all tables and information about the tables contained in the current database.

LIST TABLES   [TO PRINTER [PROMPT] | TO FILE FileName]
   [NOCONSOLE]

Parameters

TO PRINTER [PROMPT]
Directs the information returned from LIST 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 LIST TABLES to the disk 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.
NOCONSOLE
Suppresses output to the main Visual FoxPro window or to the active user-defined window.

Remarks

The information returned includes the table names and paths and is a subset of the information shown using LIST STATUS. However, the information displayed using LIST TABLES contains only table-related information and displays the information regardless of whether the tables are open.

Example

The following example opens the customer table in the testdata database. LIST TABLES is used to list information about the tables in the database.

CLOSE DATABASES
SET PATH TO (HOME(2) + 'data\')   && Sets path to database
OPEN DATABASE testdata  && Open testdata database
CLEAR
LIST TABLES  && Lists information about tables in the database
