Query and View Designers

Visual Studio .NET 2003

Use the Query designer and the View designer to create and modify queries and views. When the Query or View designer is active, Microsoft® Visual FoxPro® displays the Query menu and the Query toolbar or View designer toolbar.

The top pane of the designer displays the tables in the query or view. Each table is represented by a resizeable window that lists the table's fields and indexes. The designer shows join conditions by displaying lines that connect fields between tables. You can drag indexed fields between tables to create join conditions. Double-click a line to display the Join Condition Dialog Box for editing the condition.
