The Query Wizard helps you to design a database query. The saved query can be called later, either from the graphical user interface, or using the automatically created SQL language command.

Query Wizard - Field Selection

Specifies the table to create the query, and specifies which fields you wish to include in the query.

Query Wizard - Sorting Order

Specifies the sorting order for the data records in your query.

Query Wizard - Search Conditions

Specifies the search conditions to filter the query.

Query Wizard - Detail or Summary

Specifies whether to display all records of the query, or only the results of aggregate functions.

This page is only displayed when there are numerical fields in the query that allow the use of aggregate functions.

Query Wizard - Grouping

Specifies whether to group the query. The data source must support the SQL statement "Order by clauses" to enable this page of the Wizard.

Query Wizard - Grouping Conditions

Specifies the conditions to group the query. The data source must support the SQL statement "Order by clauses" to enable this page of the Wizard.

Query Wizard - Aliases

Assigns aliases to field names. Aliases are optional, and can provide more user-friendly names, which are displayed in place of field names. For example, an alias can be used when fields from different tables have the same name.
