get Table name from Layout using PHP

I have a php script to which I pass a database name and a static layout name to get back a list of fields it contains.


These fields will be used for a mail merge.


My script can return the field names on the layout with no problem but I need to know the table from which these fields are coming.

I understand I can get table names from portals on the page but I want only the default table for the layout.


I need to do this dynamically with PHP.


I am really struggling with the documentation and don't see methods for doing this.


Maybe I'm missing something
