Query and View Designers

To create and modify queries and views, use the Query Designer and View Designer. When the Query or View Designer is active, the Query menu and the Query Designer or the View Designer toolbar are visible.

The top pane of the designer displays the tables in the query or view. A resizable window representing each table lists the fields and indexes in the table. The designer shows join conditions by displaying lines that connect fields between tables. You can drag indexed fields between tables to create join conditions. To display the Join Condition Dialog Box for editing the condition, double-click a line.
