Executing SQL statements from Interactive SQL


One of the principal uses of Interactive SQL is to browse table data. Interactive SQL retrieves information by sending a request to your database server. The database server, in turn, looks up the information, and returns it to Interactive SQL.

After you execute a SELECT statement, the result set appears on the Results tab in the Results pane. By default, row numbers appear to the left of the result set.

To execute a SQL statement
  1. Type your query in the Statements pane.

  2. Click Execute SQL Statement, or choose SQL > Execute, or press F5 to execute the statement.

  3. To clear the SQL Statements pane
