Assistance is greatly appreciated.

What do you mean by "psuedolanguage"?  If your hosting has phpMyAdmin, you can use that.  If you have shell access, you can use the 'mysql' command line program.  All three of my Wordpress installations include 11 separate tables in the database.

My host is Arvixe and it does have phpMyAdmin.

I know the name of the database, username, password, and name of the table.  How do I get a new wp page to display all of the data in the table?

Wordpress page?  You would have to write a new page or routine in PHP to do that.  Wordpress (when it is running) is always logged into the database because that's where it stores most of the information you see on the page.  

Have you used phpMyAdmin to look at the tables to see what you want to display?  phpMyAdmin is a better tool to just look at the tables.

This article shows many of the basics of PHP + MySQL, including examples for the new extensions that replace the obsolete MySQL extension.
