SELECT is the most important and most frequently used SQL command. It initiates select queries, which are queries that obtain data from tables and return a resultset.
The following is the complex SELECT command’s general, if highly simplified, format:
SELECT select_list [INTO new_table_] FROM table_source [WHERE search_condition] [GROUP BY group_by_expression] [HAVING search_condition] [ORDER BY order_expression [ASC | DESC] ]
The following simple query returns all movies in the table tblFilms. The asterisk serves as the variable for all columns in the table.
SELECT * FROM tblFilms
Specify the column names to select specific columns, as shown here:
SELECT FilmNr, Filmtitle FROM tblFilms
