Using ExecuteSQL to Query the Virtual Schema/System Tables | Databuzz

I’m going to discuss one particular use of the ExecuteSQL function in this post: the ability to query 2 “virtual tables” for information about the schema of your FileMaker Pro v12 files. The ability to execute SQL statements has been available via the external plug-in API since FileMaker Pro v7.0v3 was released, and many plug-ins have included this functionality, including MMQuery and the BaseElements plugins. Plug-ins that utilised the SQL functionality have also had the ability to query 2 hidden “virtual tables” for information about the schema of your FileMaker database, including Table Occurrences and Field Names. Now that we have the ability to perform native SQL queries using the ExecuteSQL function in FileMaker Pro v12 we can also query these “virtual tables”.
