Thanks scott, that was what I was looking for. QSYS2 seems to have quite a few objects I will want to examine.
Anyone know if a system view map exists like they have for Microsoft SQL: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=722

Do you just want to do something like this?
select * from qsys2.systables where table_name='Whatever'

I'm used to having a wealth of information available in system views in various other database platforms but can't seem to find what works for the AS400.
I tried "select * from syscat.tables where tabname=tabletofind" but apparently that doesn't exist in the AS400's flavor of DB2. Additionally SYSIBM.SYSTABLE doesn't seem to exist either.
