Hi,

Try

select *
from information_schema.tables

SQL Server Books on Line lists this as part of SQL-92 standard.

Hi!

An extract from SQL-92 specification:

         CREATE VIEW TABLES
              AS SELECT
                TABLE_CATALOG, TABLE_SCHEMA, TABLE_NAME, TABLE_TYPE
              FROM DEFINITION_SCHEMA.TABLES
                  WHERE ( TABLE_CATALOG, TABLE_SCHEMA, TABLE_NAME )
                    IN (
                        SELECT TABLE_CATALOG, TABLE_SCHEMA, TABLE_NAME
                         FROM DEFINITION_SCHEMA.TABLE_PRIVILEGES
                           WHERE GRANTEE IN ( 'PUBLIC', CURRENT_USER )
                        UNION
                        SELECT TABLE_CATALOG, TABLE_SCHEMA, TABLE_NAME
                         FROM DEFINITION_SCHEMA.COLUMN_PRIVILEGES
                           WHERE GRANTEE IN ( 'PUBLIC', CURRENT_USER ) )
                  AND TABLE_CATALOG
                    = ( SELECT CATALOG_NAME FROM INFORMATION_SCHEMA_
              CATALOG_NAME )
