  {
    *
    | {
        <expression> [ [ AS ] <column_reference> ]
        | { <table_name> | <correlation_name> } .*
      } [ , ... ]
  }
  INTO csv:// [ filename= ] <file_path> [ ;delimiter=tab ] ]
  {
    FROM <table_reference> [ [ AS ] <identifier> ]
  } [ , ... ]
  [ [ 
      INNER | { { LEFT RIGHT FULL } [ OUTER ] }
    JOIN <table_reference> [ ON <search_condition> ] [ [ AS ] <identifier> ]
  ] [ ... ]
  WHERE <search_condition> ]
  GROUP BY <column_reference> [ , ... ]
  HAVING <search_condition> ]
  UNION ALL ] <select_statement> ]
  [
    ORDER BY
    <column_reference> [ ASC DESC ] [ NULLS FIRST | NULLS LAST ]
  ]
  [
    LIMIT <expression>
    [
      { OFFSET | , }
      <expression>
    ]
  ]
}
 
<expression> ::=
  | <column_reference>
  | @ <parameter>
  | ?
  COUNT( * | { [ DISTINCT ] <expression> } )
  | { AVG MAX MIN SUM COUNT } ( <expression> )
  NULLIF ( <expression> , <expression> )
  COALESCE ( <expression> , ... )
  CASE <expression>
      WHEN { <expression> | <search_condition> } THEN { <expression> | NULL } [ ... ]
    ELSE { <expression> | NULL } ]
    END
  | <literal>
  | <sql_function>
 
<search_condition> ::=
  {
    <expression> { = | > | < | >= | <= | <> | != | LIKE | NOT_LIKE | IN | NOT_IN | IS_NULL | IS_NOT_NULL | AND OR CONTAINS BETWEEN } [ <expression> ]
  } [ { AND OR } ... ]

Examples

  1. Return all columns:
    SELECT * FROM Images
  2. Rename a column:
    SELECT [Name] AS MY_Name FROM Images
  3. Cast a column's data as a different data type:
    SELECT CAST(Size AS VARCHAR) AS Str_Size FROM Images
  4. Search data:
    SELECT * FROM Images WHERE FolderName = 'New Folder';
  5. Return the number of items matching the query criteria:
    SELECT COUNT(*) AS MyCount FROM Images
  6. Return the number of unique items matching the query criteria:
    SELECT COUNT(DISTINCT Name) FROM Images
  7. Return the unique items matching the query criteria:
    SELECT DISTINCT Name FROM Images
  8. Summarize data:
    SELECT Name, MAX(Size) FROM Images GROUP BY Name
    See Aggregate Functions for details.
  9. Retrieve data from multiple tables.
    SELECT Channels.Name, Users.FullName FROM Channels, Users WHERE Channels.Creator=Users.Id
    See JOIN Queries for details.
  10. Sort a result set in ascending order:
    SELECT Id, Name FROM Images  ORDER BY Name ASC
  11. Restrict a result set to the specified number of rows:
    SELECT Id, Name FROM Images LIMIT 10
  12. Parameterize a query to pass in inputs at execution time. This enables you to create prepared statements and mitigate SQL injection attacks.
    SELECT * FROM Images WHERE FolderName = @param
See Explicitly Caching Data for information on using the SELECT statement in offline mode.

Pseudo Columns

Some input-only fields are available in SELECT statements. These fields, called pseudo columns, do not appear as regular columns in the results, yet may be specified as part of the WHERE clause. You can use pseudo columns to access additional features from Act-On.

SELECT * FROM Images WHERE Pseudo = '@Pseudo'
