Getting column names from a record set

Hello,

I’m trying to get the column names associated w/ this record set:

account_all = Account.find(:all)

Since account_all is an array - how do I get the names?

I know there’s got to be a simple way to do this.

Account.column_names

The column names are a property of the model, in this case Account, so
you
can try something like:

account_all = Account.find(:all)
account_all.each do |account|
for col in Account.content_columns
col.human_name: account.send(col.name)
end
end

Here’s a good example of handling columns/rows:
