When you click Generate SQL file, the SQL generated for the selected table definitions is stored in the file you selected. If the file already exists, a dialog box appears prompting you to overwrite the existing file. The progress of copying the generated SQL file appears in the Output window in the Designer.
After the file has been generated, you can click Edit SQL File, which opens a text editor so you can modify the SQL statements. When the Designer generates the SQL file for the target database, it encloses all table and field names containing the slash character in double quotes.
You can click Execute SQL File to create the tables. When you click Generate and Execute, the SQL generated for the selected table definitions is stored in the file you selected and immediately executed.
As long as the Designer is open, it locks the SQL file you last opened and modified. If you want to unlock the file so that you can view it in a different application, open a different SQL file in the Designer, or exit the Designer.
