I suspect (although I may be wrong because I often am) that Robert is 
using Paradox to look at Oracle databases to determine the table 
structures and layouts. In which case, using views won't provide the 
information he wants.

I still insist that Paradox is an unsuitable tool to do this with, an 
Admin tool for the brand of database in question should be used. Just 
for the reasons Robert has encountered.
