Subject Using IB_SQL to update V5 to V6/IB metadata
Author Raymond Kennington
I have a version 5 database that I'm converting to FB and at least partially to IBO in
order to learn about IBO and FB before beginning a new big project.

In order to do this, I need to first alter 3 tables to change the now-reserved word YEAR
to TheYEAR and update all of the stored procedures that use them.

IB_SQL doesn't show me the source to these tables so that I can change them.

Also, I haven't been able to work out how to update metadata with IB_SQL, so I'd
appreciate some direct info on that.

I've tried IBOConsole, but I don't know how to get started in that because of the need to
'Register'. What do I do with it to get it into a state in which I can view and alter
