Waty,

I don't have the object DB in ADODB (ADO).
I can't see any methods or objects named TableDef in ADODB.

I know that the stored procedure sp_tables will return the tables in a database but I couldn't execute this proceture using ADO objects.


mcix,

The database is SQL Server (OLE DB) using the ADO objects.




Regards,

Use the following SQL statement , It worked for me:
"select name from sysobjects where type = 'U' order by name"

This brings the names of all the tables in the connected database
