odbc_tables

(PHP 4, PHP 5)

odbc_tablesGet the list of table names stored in a specific data source

Description

resource odbc_tables ( resource $connection_id [, string $qualifier [, string $owner [, string $name [, string $types ]]]] )

Lists all tables in the requested range.

To support enumeration of qualifiers, owners, and table types, the following special semantics for the qualifier, owner, name, and table_type are available:

  • If qualifier is a single percent character (%) and owner and name are empty strings, then the result set contains a list of valid qualifiers for the data source. (All columns except the TABLE_QUALIFIER column contain NULLs.)
  • If owner is a single percent character (%) and qualifier and name are empty strings, then the result set contains a list of valid owners for the data source. (All columns except the TABLE_OWNER column contain NULLs.)
  • If table_type is a single percent character (%) and qualifier, owner and name are empty strings, then the result set contains a list of valid table types for the data source. (All columns except the TABLE_TYPE column contain NULLs.)

Parameters

connection_id

The ODBC connection identifier, see odbc_connect() for details.

qualifier

The qualifier.

owner

The owner. Accepts search patterns ('%' to match zero or more characters and '_' to match a single character).

name

The name. Accepts search patterns ('%' to match zero or more characters and '_' to match a single character).

types

If table_type is not an empty string, it must contain a list of comma-separated values for the types of interest; each value may be enclosed in single quotes (') or unquoted. For example, "'TABLE','VIEW'" or "TABLE, VIEW". If the data source does not support a specified table type, odbc_tables() does not return any results for that type.

Return Values

Returns an ODBC result identifier containing the information or FALSE on failure.

The result set has the following columns:

  • TABLE_QUALIFIER
  • TABLE_OWNER
  • TABLE_NAME
  • TABLE_TYPE
  • REMARKS

The result set is ordered by TABLE_TYPE, TABLE_QUALIFIER, TABLE_OWNER and TABLE_NAME.
