I have an Informix database with limited privilidge and I can only access the database using dbaccess.  Now I want to recreate the database structure on another server.  Can I run a query on the source informix database to export the SQL command to regenerate the database?  Thanks.

Unfortunately I have very limited access to the database.  There is no way I can install any software on the server or use any unauthorized software to connect remotely.  Thanks.
