Abstract

A method is described which allows the user to easily learn to construct Structured Query Language (SQL) commands through the panels and windows, but also allows them to view the SQL commands. This allows the user to build relationships between the actions which are normal for them to complete through the aided approach and SQL commands which may be foreign to them. SQL is a difficult language to master. The new method allows the user a method which does not require this language to be learned since SQL statements are constructed based on the choices made by the user through a series of panels and windows. Even though users do not necessarily need to learn the SQL language, there are those who would like to be able to.
