Hi John,

Are you able to build a new IB_SQL using the latest IBO source?

Jason recently enabled my new updates to the IB_SQL metadata extract
stuff (it is a full rewrite based on Claudio's original code but
implemented quite differently). That change is not in the version of
IB_SQL that you are running.

In theory at least the extract should cope with external tables but I
would be very interested to hear if there are problems.

If you are not a registered IBO-source user, perhaps I can privately
email you a new version of IB_SQL built with the latest IBO source so
you can experiment.
