I am new to use SAS dictionary tables. I have ODBC connection to an oracle database. I do not have a database diagram and try to use SAS dictionary to display the tables in this database. I can successfully display the members (the library I defined) of my dictionary. I wonder if I can display the data/tables within the library and how.
Here are the codes I wrote.
/*my connection to the database*/
libname sql odbc prompt; /*define sql as the libname*/
/*display all the libraries i have ever defined*/
Library sql is one of them. The member name is CTAR_Datamart_prod and name is ODBC. all other information are empty. How can I display the tables in this sql library. Thanks.

For Oracle tables, check out this paper:
For Other database, you can find their Meta data info here:

When using Oracle I find it very helpful to also use SQLDeveloper (free client, can be downloaded from Oracle).
...and as a hint: When downloading/installing the 64bit Windows SQLDeveloper version point it to a 32 bit jdk (version 6.x) - took me a lot of Googling to figure this one out.
