Looking for the equivalent sybase select statement for the oracle statement below: This statement uses metadata to export the Table name, column name, data type & length, description/definition and all other attributes

SELECT OWNER,TABLE_NAME, COLUMN_NAME, DATA_TYPE, DATA_LENGTH, DATA_PRECISION, DATA_SCALE, NULLABLE, COLUMN_ID
FROM ALL_TAB_COLUMNS
where OWNER = 'ME'

Answer - I wrote the following code and it works very well,
thought I'd share it.

select T.creator, C.tname, C.colno, C.cname, C.coltype,C.length,C.in_primary_key, C.nulls, C.remarks
from SYSCOLUMNS C, SYSTABLE T
where Trim(C.creator) = 'DBA'
and Trim(C.tname) = Trim(T.table_name);

output to c:\DirName\FileName.txt
format ascii;

Hi rick,
This script will do the work for you

select Table_name = o.name ,
       Column_name= c.name,
          Data_type   = t.name,
             Length = c.length,
             Prec = c.prec,
             Scale = c.scale,
             Nulls = convert(bit, (c.status & 8))
            from syscolumns c, systypes t,sysobjects o
            where c.id <>0 and c.id = o.id and o.type = 'U'
                  and c.usertype *= t.usertype



Regards
