     This article describes an easy approach to examining all of the tables, views, and columns in a database, the article is written to describe an example application that may be used to connect to a database (Oracle, SQL Server, or MS Access), view that database’s tables and views, and drill down into each table or view to generate a list of all of its contained columns. Further, the application will allow the user to examine the definition associated with each column (e.g., its data type, caption, default value, etc.).

For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net including:McAfee.com
