Lists all tables in the requested range. Returns an ODBC result
identifier containing the information or
FALSE on failure.
The result set has the following columns:
The result set is ordered by TABLE_TYPE, TABLE_QUALIFIER, TABLE_OWNER and TABLE_NAME.
The owner and name arguments accept search patterns ('%' to match zero or more characters and '_' to match a single character).
To support enumeration of qualifiers, owners, and table types, the following special semantics for the qualifier, owner, name, and table_type are available:
If table_type is not an empty string, it must contain a list of comma-separated values for the types of interest; each value may be enclosed in single quotes (') or unquoted. For example, "'TABLE','VIEW'" or "TABLE, VIEW". If the data source does not support a specified table type, odbc_tables() does not return any results for that type.
