Query Builder

The Query Builder allows the user to select records by searching fields for a specified value. Clicking on the Query Builder button brings up a dialog box.

The user can build an equation of combinations of the various fields of the table and the strings (words are identified as character strings) and numbers that describe the field.

  • Watch the parentheses that are included in the equation, ArcView is very particular about proper use of parentheses to separate expressions in the equation.
  • All strings need to be surrounded by quotation marks("), ex. Brazil = "Brazil".
  • After a query has been run, the Promote button can be used to move all the selected records to the top of the table.
