DISPLAY DATABASE Command
Displays information about the current database or fields, named connections, tables, or views in the current database.
DISPLAY DATABASE [TO PRINTER [PROMPT] | TO FILE FileName] [NOCONSOLE]
- TO PRINTER [PROMPT]
- Directs output from DISPLAY DATABASE to a printer.
In Visual FoxPro, you can include the optional PROMPT clause to display a Print dialog box before printing starts. Place PROMPT immediately after TO PRINTER.
- TO FILE FileName
- Directs output from DISPLAY DATABASE 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.
Use DBGETPROP( ) to return additional information about the current database.

CREATE DATABASE people CREATE TABLE friends (FirstName C(20), LastName C(20)) CLEAR DISPLAY TABLES && Displays tables in the database DISPLAY DATABASES && Displays table information
