Using just ArcView here, or Desktop Basic, or whatever it's called now.

I want to write a function that detects if a feature class has any Subtypes in it, and if so, has a field been specified as the Subtype field. These are both just Yes/No answers. I would have thought for sure that describing the feature class would yield a Subtype property, but apparently it does not. Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks!
