Rapid SQL incorporates a powerful SQL scripting environment, the SQL Editor. The SQL Editor lets you write, debug, test and deploy solid SQL code for your database applications.
You can open multiple SQL windows. In addition, when you open an SQL file, it opens in an SQL Editor window. For more information, see Opening Files.
