The SQL query builder is a convenient drag-and-drop user interface that helps both technical and nontechnical users create and view relationships between tables with just a few clicks. It provides both graphical and text-based modes to create SQL queries easily.
The graphical query designer displays a hierarchical view of tables, views, and procedures available in the database for interactively building queries. A simple drag and drop to the query design view will generate the queries for your data set.
The text-based query designer lets you write queries in the query syntax that is supported by the data source. A built-in data preview option is available to view the query results.
The query builder provides a dialog interface to manage relationships between tables. You can choose the column names to join the tables.

The ASP.NET WebForms Report Designer supports extending the functionalities of the query designer. It allows users to enable a graphical database view for any required data source type that does not have native support.
