    Hi Richard,

    As far as I understand, there's no SQL 'Describe table' equivalent in ABASE at the moment, right? Is there an existing ABASE alternative? Is that a planned feature?

    Thanks! -- Alex

    Hi Satri

    Have you tried any of the following?

    [abase sql="DESCRIBE atable"] OR
    [abase sql="SHOW COLUMNS FROM atable"] OR
    [abase sql="SHOW CREATE TABLE atable"]

    Thanks Richard. I tried the first option and it worked as expected. Great.

    I haven't "launched" my site that uses ABASE yet. It's (yet another) side project and with two young daughters at home, such projects don't evolve as fast as I'd like. In any case, thanks for your excellent support. I of course mention ABASE on the site in question: http://animoog.org/database/

    Cheers Richard! -- Alex

    Ah! I just realized I confused Richard Harding, you, and Richard the 'owner' of ABASE. Sorry for the confusion! Thanks anyway! -- Alex
