DDS TEXT() keyword replaced by the SQL
LABEL ON COLUMN MYTBALE (
MYCOL1 text is 'My Column';
...
);


DDS COLHDG() keyword replaced by the SQL
LABEL ON COLUMN MYTBALE (
MYCOL1 is 'My Column';
...
);

Note that the above would give you a two line column heading...It's a fixed
format 60 character label. Each 20 characters is a separate line.

is the method for adding a description to a field during table creation or
