Disclosed is a technique for representing a model element as a tree element or table element for purposes of viewing the information contained in the model element. A key part of this technique is the fact that the model element is independent of the GUI elements - a tree or table element. Another key part of the technique is that it operates on a "model" of the syntactic structure of a SQL statement, which will be herein referred to as the "Query Model". This technique is used with the Query Model elements created either through SQL parsing of a SQL statement, or through using the GUI to build a SQL Statement. This technique was implemented in the tool SQLAssist for DB2 V8.1.
