Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a shortcut for running a Query?

Yes. If you press ⌘ + R it will run all the commands in the Query view. If you press ⌘ + ⌥ + R it will run either the currently selected text as a query OR the entire query in which you are currently positioned.

How do I create an enum field in a table?

To create an enum field follow the same procedure as you would for any other field, choose enum in the Type_column of the Table Structure form, and then in the _Length column enter the enum values as comma separated quoted strings. If you wish to use a default value, you should enter it without quotes in the Default column.
