Once you execute a query in Interactive SQL, you can edit the result set to modify the database. You can also select rows from the result set and copy them for use in other applications. Interactive SQL supports editing, inserting, and deleting rows. Editing the result set has the same effect as executing UPDATE, INSERT, and DELETE statements.
To edit a row or value in the result set, you must have the proper permissions on the table or column you want to modify values from. For example, if you want to delete a row, then you must have DELETE permission for the table the row belongs to.
You cannot edit a result set if you:
select columns from a table with a primary key, but do not select all of the primary key columns.
attempt to edit the result set of a JOIN (for example, if there is data from more than one table in the result set).
Editing the result set may fail if you:
attempt to edit a row or column you do not have permission on.
enter an invalid value (for example, a string in a numeric column or a NULL in a column that does not allow NULLs).
When editing fails, an Interactive SQL error message appears explaining the error, and the database table values remain unchanged.
