 Yup.  Try:

        select tabname, tabid from systables;

 to get a list of the table names.

 To get columns for that table:

         select * from syscolumns where tabid=xxxx;

 xxxx is the tabid of the table of interest.

Since this is an inner join:

[Table] +++++  [Table]

I thought an outer join must be like this:

++[Table]         [Table]++
+                                    +

Since that makes no sense, I've been confused for years.
Why use the terms "inner" and "outer" if they can't be taken literally?
