Hi Mark,

This is probably more of a MySQL thing than a Rev thing. I would  
recommend reading through the MySQL documentation if you haven't  
already, and check out the commands for working with databases and  
their tables. If I'm not mistaken, you should be able to use any  
MySQL command by running it through the revExecuteSQL command from  
your Revolution code. One thing to watch would be user permissions  
for your MySQL server, and making sure users have the ability to  
create/modify database schemas.

Hopefully this will help you in the right direction. Btw, by no means  
do I consider myself a database guru. :-)
