An action query changes data or copies data. Action queries include append, delete, make-table, and update queries. In contrast, a select query doesn't copy or change data; it simply returns a set of records.

AppendAdds the records in a query's result set to the end of an existing table.
DeleteDeletes a set of rows that match the criteria you specify.
Make-TableCreates a new table from the result set of an existing query.
UpdateChanges a set of records according to criteria you specify.
