does this table exist?

Recommended Posts

ran through the refman without much luck -- I just don't know what to search for. I found something in the PHP manual as a starting point "SQL SHOW TABLES" but I don't want to parse through a long list of table names -- just see if a very specific table name exists. Any ideas?

Thanks!

try
[!--sql--][div class=\'sqltop\']SQL[/div][div class=\'sqlmain\'][!--sql1--]SHOW TABLES [color=orange]LIKE[/color] [color=red]'table_name'[/color] [!--sql2--][/div][!--sql3--]

If table_name doesn't exist, it will return empty set.
