Hello Andy

Thanks for the quick response.

I'll take your word for it. Looking at the document you linked to, I cannot see that the grammar has been updated to include variable bindings in the DESCRIBE clause [11], as is allowed in [9] for SELECT:

By the way: BINDINGS is set to change to generalise it -- some discussion:
