Defining the columns of a recordset

Defining the columns of a recordset

You can use SQL to define recordsets for your pages. A recordset is a subset of records extracted from a database. For more information, see About databases.

Here’s the basic SQL syntax to define the columns of a recordset:

SELECT ColumnName1, ColumnName2, ColumnNameX FROM TableName

If you want to include all the columns of a table in the recordset, you can use the wildcard character *, as follows:

SELECT * FROM TableName

For example, suppose you have a table called Customers. To extract all the columns, you would type the following SELECT statement:

SELECT * FROM Customers

Suppose you only need the data contained in two columns of the Customers table: the YearBorn column and the DateLastPurchase column. To create a recordset containing only the data from these two columns, you would type the following SELECT statement:

SELECT YearBorn, DateLastPurchase
FROM Customers
