SQL Statement

SQL Statement

Enter an SQL statement to retrieve data for the SQL view.
Because the database runs the SQL statement, you must use valid database syntax when you enter the SQL statement. The number and order of the columns in the SQL statement and column definition list must match. The datatypes of the columns must be compatible.
To avoid errors when you run tests, test the SQL statement in the database before you paste it into the
SQL Statement
field. Data Validation Option does not validate the SQL statement syntax.
