ODBC Field list

This is probably a very simple question. I have a linked server to my MS SQL 7.0 that is an AS400 system. How do I run a query through the sql to return fields only off the 400?  I run quires all the time through it to return rows and etc, but I lack the syntax to just get a field list. This is an ODBC connection via open query.

Thanks!!

select * from YourTable where 0=1

or via open query

you could try

( select * from yourtable fetch first 1 row only)  Db2/udb syntax
