I don't think, that you can manage it in one step. First you have to query the fieldnames from your table. There are different sql statements in the different database systems for that, like in sqlite:
B4X:
PRAGMA table_info(mytable);
in the second step you iterate through the result of the first query and build your select statement

I have solved it by extracting the fieldnames from the table, put them in a list, sorted it and used the list to build a new sql select statement.
Works fine.
Thanks for your suggestions.
