>Can somebody tell me if I can (and how to) 'retrieve' the DDS from an
SQL created file? 

You might look into the retrieve file description API QDBRTVFD.  We use it for
a similar purpose, it gives you what you would need.  The format of the return
information is very convoluted and confusing but you can work with it (trial and
error.)  There are simpler APIs, QUSLFLD, QUSLRCD, etc, that give back a
subset of this information.  You might not give everything you want but the
return info could be used to create an editable base.
