I would like to know how to retrieve the  columns and datatypes of a table  used  in a report. I used the desc [Tablename]  keyword in the Database Direct query window but nothing was  retrieved.

The main Service Manager request table is documented in the wiki (https://wiki.hornbill.com/index.php/Table_Info:_Main_Request_Table ) but is a little bit out of date.

You can use the SQL below in Database Direct to get information on the table object for a specified table.
 

SELECT
    COLUMN_NAME, DATA_TYPE
FROM
      INFORMATION_SCHEMA.COLUMNS
WHERE
    TABLE_NAME = 'h_itsm_requests'

SELECT
	COLUMN_NAME, DATA_TYPE
FROM
  	INFORMATION_SCHEMA.COLUMNS
WHERE
	TABLE_NAME = 'h_itsm_requests'

Example output.
