Hi Chris,

Sure, I have read the documentation. Once a database has been  
created, I can modify it. That's not the problem. I would like to do  
something like this (in a button):

on mouseUp
   revExecuteSQL 1,"SHOW DATABASES;"
   put the result
end mouseUp

and would like to get a list of databases returned, but the result is  
empty. The used parameters for revExecuteSQL are not really logical  
of course, since I provide a database ID while the SQL statement is  
typically executed before opening a database. Any ideas?
