Reviewing Attributes

Reviewing the database attributes of elements is the cornerstone of the database interface. You can graphically query the database to review attributes using the Review Database Attributes of Element tool. The attributes can be displayed for review in the SQL Window or in the Visual SQL Query Builder dialog .

Note: The SQL Window displays read-only database information when the Review Database Attributes of Element tool is used to identify a graphic element.
Note: The Visual SQL Query Builder form is generated and displays when the VSQL REVIEW key-in is used to identify and accept an element. These are editable database attributes.

Setting Attribute Review Selection Criteria

Attribute review selection criteria can be set and saved in the sqlreview column of the row in MSCATALOG for the desired table. The sqlreview value applies only to data retrieved for display in the SQL Window.
