Description of the Options
When the SQL Statements option is chosen, the statement list in the left pane shows each of the statement types available on the current data source. These syntax examples reflect the SQL syntax of the connected data source. The syntax file name matches the database type with the file type of .syn. For example, the Teradata syntax file is Teradata.syn.
Note: The Teradata syntax file includes new syntax to support Teradata Database V2R6.1 and later.
Customize the .syn file by editing the file. To do this, follow the procedure, “Create a Custom Syntax File” on page 125 except skip step 2 (do not include a header line at the start of the file). When the file is saved, ensure the file name matches the database type. For example, Teradata.syn.
When the Procedure Builder option is chosen, the left pane shows a list of statements that are valid only when
used in a
REPLACE procedure statement.
Create a user-defined syntax file using any text editor such as Notepad or Microsoft Word. The name of the file must be custom.syn. The format of this file is the same as the other syntax files except it has an additional line at the start of the file containing the name that is seen in the drop-down list in the Query Builder dialog box. For additional information, see “Create a Custom Syntax File” on page 125.
