Scaffolding w/ existing DB Tables

I am sure many people have asked this already... But I could not find
anything helpful. I am trying to use RoR with an existing database with
tables already defined.

I used script/generate scaffold account

But when I point to localhost:3000/account, no table columns showed up.
The "new account" link is there, but no columns nor any content (and I
have content in my db table). When I click on new account, only the
create button showed up. When I click on the create button, a new entry
gets added to my existing db table, with all fields blank!

What's up with this? It's obviously able to talk to the DB, but what did
I do wrong that caused RoR to not able to figure out what fields already
exist?

My table was named account, but ActiveScaffold insists on using accounts
as the table name, so I added set_table_name "account" to my Model
class.

I appreciate any help.

Thank you,

With scaffolding you can specify the list of fields and its data type.
Try again this way...

ruby script/generate scaffold Account field1:datatype field2:datatype

let me know if it works.
