The Query Window is a fully functional editing environment that can be used to edit and execute queries. The following list describes some of the features the editor:
See “Setting Code Editor Options” on page 69.
See “Using Code Completion” on page 73.
See “The Query Toolbar” on page 166.
See “Selecting Text and Inserting Bookmarks Using the Query Window Margin” on page 65.
See “The Query Toolbar” on page 166
See “Recording and Executing Query Window Macros” on page 82.
See “General Command Shortcut Keys” on page 177 and “Window Control Shortcut Keys” on page 181.
The results from the query are placed into one or more Answerset windows. Alternatively, the results can be written directly to a file.
Queries can consist of one or more statements, and can return zero or more Answersets. Enter SQL, DDL, or DML into the Query Window.
Comments can be added to queries. These comments are stored in the history database as part of the query.
When the Query Window is active, the menus, commands, and tools available pertain only to that window.
