I presume you want to see the information regarding all the coulmns of table in your schema. You can do that by,

SELECT * FROM USER_TAB_COLUMNS;

  I have no idea of viewing field/file contents. Are you taking about Database files like that of Access?

I run the command "SELECT * FROM USER_TAB_COLUMNS;" but what I found was it view a very long list of table schema. I just want to view a row so that I can know what field is in it.
