Which SQL command will display a list of tables in my Oracle database

Which SQL command will display a list of tables in my Oracle database

Which SQL command will display a list of tables in my Oracle database

(OP)
I have an Oracle database, I am using SQL plus to browse my data. I need to know is an SQL command
that will display a list of tables in my database. Thanks!

RE: Which SQL command will display a list of tables in my Oracle database

select *
from user_tables;

or if you just want to see that table names,

select table_name
from user_tables;

RE: Which SQL command will display a list of tables in my Oracle database

User_tables will tell you all the tables that are part of your schema (User). If you want to know all the tables in the database try:

select * from all_tables;

You may refine that query by adding a where clause:

select * from all_tables
where owner = 'BBS'; <SUBSTITUTE YOUR USER ID FOR BBS>
