At runtime. I basically want to read a CSV file with field names
included in the first line, map them to fields in the target table,
check the target field's base type (bigint, timestamp, integer, varchar,
etc) and convert the incoming data appropriately.

In the ADO components, the database component can give you a list of
table names. The table component can give you properties of each table.
I'm looking for the equivalent using IBO.
