Want to create Interbase tables at runtime

I am trying to write a utility to create Interbase (at runtime) tables from
Paradox tables.  I can go from Interbase (or Oracle) to Paradox, reading the
table and index defs and using the TTable.CreateTable, but I can't seem to
go from Paradox to Interbase.  (The SQLMonitor shows 'select' statements and
no CREATE TABLE statements).

Any clues or will I just have to build a SQL strings to create the new
tables.

TIA,
Jake
