Visual Interdev 6.0 - Query Sorting

Visual Interdev 6.0 - Query Sorting

Visual Interdev 6.0 - Query Sorting

Yes, I am a Newbie. I have InterDev 6.0 and SQL Server 2000 loaded on my home computer. I don't see the "Sort Order" or "Sort Number" columns in the query grid pane nor do I see the combo box that enables you select the type of query. Can these features be turned on somehow?

Some background on me:
I have created many programs using Microsoft Access. I am trying to learn InterDev 6.0 so I can begin moving my programs to SQL Server.

Thanks for this basic help!!

RE: Visual Interdev 6.0 - Query Sorting

Can you use an ORDER BY clause at the end of your SQL statement?

Also, the SQL Server "Query Analyzer" is a better program to use when hacking at queryies in SQL Server.

RE: Visual Interdev 6.0 - Query Sorting

Dear Sheco,

Thanks for the response. I will look into the SQL server query analyzer. I know about using the "order by" clause but I am hoping to find the same query building tool I am very familar with in Microsoft Access. It should be there because... I see it in the books I bought and in the help screens!!! For some reason when I call for a new query, the "sort order" and "sort number columns are not there (along with a combo box that allows you to select the type of query you want to write.

Look at:

I am going to try to reload/update my software tonight.

Thanks for any additional help.

RE: Visual Interdev 6.0 - Query Sorting

I think I answered my own question. The functionality I was looking for was only available when I would right click "add item" to a project from the Project Explorer window. I was in "View Designer" instead of "Query Designer" by mistake.

Thanks anyway.
