Here is a sample how to quickly create a Paradox table
with some field definied using a SQL language to do so

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  with Query1 do
  begin
    DatabaseName := 'DBDemos';
    with SQL do
    begin
      Clear;
      {
        CREATE TABLE creates a table with the given name in the
        current database
      }
      Add('CREATE TABLE "PDoxTbl.db" (ID AUTOINC,');
      Add('Name CHAR(255),');
      Add('PRIMARY KEY(ID))');
      {
        Call ExecSQL to execute the SQL statement currently
        assigned to the SQL property.
      }
      ExecSQL;
      Clear;
      Add('CREATE INDEX ByName ON "PDoxTbl.db" (Name)');
      ExecSQL;
    end;
  end;
end;

As you can see SQL Language is a pretty familiar one.
If you understand SQL you can do everything with databases, and not only.
