Hi,

Thanks for your email and interest. HanDBase is not a SQL statement based database manager. So writing queries is a foreign concept to our application. That said, we have a feature called Views, which while not statement based, do offer much of the same functionality- you choose which fields to show and in what order, how the data is sorted, and which records to show. Then you give this a name and in the future you can tap the view selector and choose one of the named 'queries' to filter the data and display it to your specs.

Hope this meets your needs!
