How is the Select statement in MapBasic used?
The best way to understand Select statements is to open the MapBasic window in MapInfo and run a few sample selections. This will display the proper syntax of the statement.
table_name [,...] Where expression_group
The result of any Select statement is a temporary table that, by default, may be referenced by one of two names: Selection or Query#. The table Selection will change with each new query ( Note: see Using the Noselect option in a query-->
). The table Query# is a snapshot of the selection and can be accessed at a later time. The Into table option can be included in the statement and effectively changes the name of the Query# table.
