dict_table(add4)import - Import Table

(there is no screen)

The purpose of this function is to allow the user to import table names into the DICT_TABLE table of the data dictionary for the selected database.

Note that this will import only the names of each available table, not the details of any columns. The details of any table which no longer exists will not be removed automaticaly from the dictionary, but will have to be done manually.

This form is accessed by an option on the navigation bar in the List Tables by Database screen.

For a complete description of how this type of form works please see Transaction Pattern ADD 4.

Note that it will not import any associated column definitions, just the table names.
