Teradata SQL Query Builder extends the Eclipse Data Tools Platform SQL Query Builder to provide execution on Teradata. SQL Query Builder provides a graphical interface to create, edit, or run SQL statements. It provides access to your database schema and objects so that you can quickly create or edit SQL statements without actually typing any SQL code. You also have the flexibility to add or modify the SQL code in the editor window.
You can open the Teradata SQL Query Builder in the SQL Editor by right-clicking an SQL file in the Project Explorer and choosing the Open With option, then selecting Teradata SQL Query Builder from the list of Editor choices.
|SQL Statement Type||Description|
|SELECT||Creates a SELECT statement to retrieve data from a database and displays the result set in a table format.|
|INSERT||Creates an INSERT statement to insert rows into the table.|
|UPDATE||Creates an UPDATE statement to update data in a table.|
|DELETE||Creates a DELETE statement to remove data from a specified table.|
The SQL Query Builder provides tabs to edit the Columns, Conditions, Groups and Group Conditions. Right-clicking the graphical area background provides options to add tables or create joins. Right-clicking a table provides options to add a table, create a join, replace a table, select all columns, deselect all columns, update an alias, and remove a table. You can also drag table objects from the Data Source Explorer and drop them in the graphical display of the SQL Query Builder to easily add tables to your SQL statement.
The SQL Query Builder can also be launched from the SQL Editor context menu by selecting a SQL statement then choosing the option Edit in SQL Query Builder. The SQL Query Builder displays the SQL statement as well as a graphical view of the tables, columns, and table joins.
An Outline Viewer is displayed to the right of the graphical display. This shows a high-level outline view of the SQL Statements.
