[SOLVED]Possible for Auto Generate synonym?

Hi,

Let's say I have adopter connect to MS SQL DB Server, and there is over 100+ tables in there and increasing table amount frequently. Is there a way to automatically create those synonyms into an application directory?
(** Table name and fileds' name and amount of fields may be different from each table)

And instead of a DB, what if there is 100+ of .csv that need to be create synonyms automatically into an application directory?

For DB tables, there is a CREATE SYNONYM command.

For CSV, no, as its extremely difficult to determine the content of a field. Many assumptions would need to be made. Even the number of columns may be difficult if some rows have more columns than others.
