To See the Tables in Your Database:

1. Type the following:

    mysql> SHOW TABLES;
    Empty set (0.00 sec)

NOTE: If you have not made any, then zero will appear.
 

To Create a Table: 

1. Type the following:

    mysql> CREATE TABLE Friends (name char(20), age integer);
    Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.05 sec)

2. A table with two fields has now been created: an array of twenty characters, or a "name" field, and an integer, "age" field.  You should see something like this when you ask to see your tables

mysql> SHOW TABLES;

example table


3. You can now view the columns in your new table:
