You can write, edit, and execute SQL in an SQL Window, which is available from within the Data Explorer.
To open a SQL Window
- Choose View > Data Explorer.
- Select a connection.
- Right-click the connection and choose SQL Window. This opens a tabbed SQL Window in the Code Editor.
To execute SQL
- Enter a valid SQL statement or stored procedure name in the multi-line text box at the top of the SQL Window.
- Click Execute SQL. If the SQL statement or stored procedure is valid, the result set appears in the bottom pane of the SQL Window.
Note: The SQL statement or stored procedure must operate against the current connection and its target database. You cannot execute SQL against a database to which you are not connected.
- Click Clear All SQL to clear the SQL statement or stored procedure from the multi-line text box.
