We describe four tables (one for each signature) of sixth-degree fields K containing a quadratic subfield k. The tables contain various information, including, for each possible discriminant ${d_K}$ of K, a cubic polynomial which defines K/k, the discriminant of the quartic field $\tilde k$ such that $\tilde k/k$ is the quadratic extension corresponding to K/k, and the Galois group of the Galois closure $N/\mathbb {Q}$ of $K/\mathbb {Q}$.
