hi

(the sql result should be an empty table constructed from the fields in the select query)
i try to use several ways including sql false  condition but its look like every time the the sql is running he always scan all the data record ....

He means, creating a new table, that it's structure is based on several fields from several tables.
This will be done by using SQL statement: Create Table...
Right?

i'll try ...
i have some sql query, one of the things that the user should have , is the option to choose fields from the sql result;
since the sql query is created dynamicly, and i dont know witch fields are going to be in the query, i want to find some way to execute the query just for the purpose to know the query fields name; this action have to be very quick and should not do any real query/condition/procsses
if i'll recive an empty query table, it will be very easy 4 me to access to all its field
The problem that i got is that any try to exec even a simple query, the query start going over allthe data record and it is very slow proccess ....

Is it necessary for you to build the table, using SQL, Cause I prefer to build it by another method, based of course on these Linked tables.

Hmmmm, I just wonder. It's hard for me to understand what you realy want.

Maybe you can create your table just the usual way, I mean to add field objects to a table object. Can you explain again how a query can do a thing that this "usual" way can't?

Asi,

U cannot get the fields name from a query component without opening it. U need to open it for access the fieldnames. Another thing u should remember is that it does not take anytime for the Open statement to execute because it just opens a internal cursor handle to the database that it is using. Hence whatever is the size of the table, it will always be fast.

Hi,
In INFORMIX and ORACLE, there is a possibilty to do it.

Here is an example in INFORMIX:
SELECT colname, coltype, HEX(collength)
FROM syscolumns C, systables T
WHERE C.tabid = T.tabid AND T.tabname = 'orders'

syscolumns and systables are informix system tables which store information on the database tables.

In PARADOX, however, I think you'll have to define your database
in the Data Dictionary.
The Data Dictionary stores information on your table's structure etc.
Enter the BDE GUI Application and see that the DBDEMOS is already defined.
The system Table name is BDESDD, located in:
C:\Program Files\Borland\Delphi 3\OBJREPOS

I don't know much about the data in this table, but as every other table, you can use SQL with it.

Regards,
Ronit
