Thanks in advance.
What about mod_t? That is not a table name so the criteria for deciding what is a table name needs to be clearly defined.

Give this a try:

awk '
{ for(i=1;i<=NF;i++) {
    if($i ~ /into|from|"update/) { 
      print $(i+1)
}' file

If you get errors, use gwk, nawk or /usr/xpg4/bin/awk on Solaris.
