    Your first Oracle gig, eh?

    look at dba_tables and dba_tab_columns. Also, you might want to look at the docs at http://tahiti.oracle.com.

    Thank you Jeff for your information.

    My actual requirement is a short description on the columns in tables of a particular schema

    are you talking about dictionary and dict_columns views?
    (for a list of user tables you'll have to link it on table_name)

    you'll also be hoping that you actually have comments on your user tables - you could probably count on one hand the number of databases in the world created with column comments.......I know mine don't

    I spent a month there, I was dreaming of a pork chop and a beer after two weeks! In August you get plenty of sun, if you like teperatures near 50C.
