Hello

  Start new VCL .Net application, drop Session component from BDE, and two listboxes and one button

ListBox1 will show all the aliases, when you click on anyone like DBDEMOS it will show you the tables on the ListBox2

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  Session1.GetDatabaseNames(ListBox1.Items);
end;

procedure TForm1.ListBox1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  ShowMessage(ListBox1.Items[ListBox1.ItemIndex]);
  Session1.GetTableNames(ListBox1.Items[ListBox1.ItemIndex],'*.*',True,True,ListBox2.Items);
end;

HTH

Regards,
Mohammed
