? in sql-explorer or in delphi 2 ?
there is no way to create table in sql explorer except by writing SQL like this:

CREATE TABLE "employee.db"
  last_name CHAR(20),
  first_name CHAR(15),
  salary NUMERIC(10,2),
  dept_no SMALLINT,
  PRIMARY KEY (last_name, first_name)

see localsql.hlp for more details about CREATE TABLE.
if you don't want to write SQL, use Database Desktop. There you can easy create tables.

On the menu bar in Delphi 2.0 there is a 'Database' submenu - within this submenu there is an 'Explore' option, which opens the 'SQL Explorer' - This is what I am referring to...
Hi Tracey

Like 333 says there is no easy way to create tables in SQL Explorer other than using SQL statements, use Database Desktop.

If you want I can mail you a copy of a program to create database tables easily using a more graphical approach. It can be used to create tables for several types of database: paradox, dbase, oracle, access etc...

I can mail you a copy if you leave your email address. The file is 1.1MB, can your email cope with this size attachment?
