See my previous message. From what I have seen so far, information_schema
data provide more info than datadict represents.

Zeos uses jdbc names for metadata which is very close, if not identical, to
odbc names. It implements most if not all of the jdbc metadata calls. The
TZSQLMetadata dataset descendant implements the following: mdProcedures,
mdProcedureColumns, mdTables, mdSchemas,
    mdCatalogs, mdTableTypes, mdColumns, mdColumnPrivileges,
    mdBestRowIdentifier, mdVersionColumns, mdPrimaryKeys, mdImportedKeys,
    mdExportedKeys, mdCrossReference, mdTypeInfo, mdTriggers, mdIndexInfo,
