The Results pane shows the results of the most recently executed Select query. (The results of other query types are displayed in message boxes.) To open the results pane, open or create a query or view or return a table's data. If the results pane doesn't show by default, from the Query Designer menu, point to Pane, and then click Results.
The dialog boxes and menu commands you see might differ from those described in Help depending on your active settings or edition. To change your settings, choose Import and Export Settings on the Tools menu. For more information, see Visual Studio Settings.
You can quickly navigate through the records using the navigation bar at the bottom of the Results pane.
There are buttons for going to the first and last records, the next and previous records, and for going to a particular record.
To go to a particular record, type the number of the row in the text box in the navigation bar and then press ENTER.
For information about using keyboard shortcuts in the Query and View Designer see Navigating in the Query and View Designer.
While you're working on the results of a query or view it is possible for the records in the results pane to get out of synchronization with the queries definition. For example, if you ran a query for four out of five columns in a table, then used the Diagram pane to add the fifth column to the definition of the query, that fifth columns data will not automatically be added to the results pane. To make the results pane reflect the new query definition, run the query again.
You can tell if this happens--an alert icon and the text "Query Changed" appears in the lower-right corner of the results pane and the icon is repeated in the upper-left corner of the pane.
