An SQL specific query is one that can be created only by writing an SQL statement in SQL view. Union, pass-through, and data definition queries are SQL specific queries.

SQL specific query typeDescription
UnionAn SQL specific select query that combines corresponding fields from two or more tables or queries into one field. For example, a union query of the Customers table and the Suppliers table results in a snapshot that contains all the specified records from both the Customers table and the Suppliers table.
Pass-ThroughAn SQL specific query that sends commands directly to an SQL database server (such as Microsoft SQL Server). With pass-through queries, you work with the tables on the server instead of linking the tables to your Microsoft Access database.
Data DefinitionAn SQL specific query that can create or delete an index, or create, alter, or delete a table.
