See the TSession.GetTableNames method. This method will fill a pre-existing string list object with the names of the tables in the database specified in the DatabaseName argument.
 
  Session.GetTableNames('DBDEMOS', '*.db', True, False, ListBox1.Items);
 
The DatabaseName property can be the name of a BDE alias, a string containing a driver/directory (local table types, only), or the value in the DatabaseName property of a properly connected TDatabase component.
