  • WHERE
  • GROUP BY
  • HAVING
  • UNION
  • ORDER BY
  • LIMIT

SELECT Syntax

The following syntax diagram outlines the syntax supported by the SQL engine of the driver:

SELECT {
  [ TOP <numeric_literal> | DISTINCT ]
  { 
    * 
    | { 
        <expression> [ [ AS ] <column_reference> ] 
        | { <table_name> | <correlation_name> } .* 
      } [ , ... ] 
  }
  [ INTO csv:// [ filename= ] <file_path> [ ;delimiter=tab ] ]
  { 
    FROM <table_reference> [ [ AS ] <identifier> ] 
  } [ , ... ]
  [ [  
      INNER | { { LEFT | RIGHT | FULL } [ OUTER ] } 
    ] JOIN <table_reference> [ ON <search_condition> ] [ [ AS ] <identifier> ] 
  ] [ ... ] 
  [ WHERE <search_condition> ]
  [ GROUP BY <column_reference> [ , ... ]
  [ HAVING <search_condition> ]
  [ UNION [ ALL ] <select_statement> ]
  [ 
    ORDER BY 
    <column_reference> [ ASC | DESC ] [ NULLS FIRST | NULLS LAST ]
  ]
  [ 
    LIMIT <expression>
    [ 
      { OFFSET | , }
      <expression> 
    ]
  ] 
} | SCOPE_IDENTITY() 

<expression> ::=
  | <column_reference>
  | @ <parameter> 
  | ?
  | COUNT( * | { [ DISTINCT ] <expression> } )
  | { AVG | MAX | MIN | SUM | COUNT } ( <expression> ) 
  | NULLIF ( <expression> , <expression> ) 
  | COALESCE ( <expression> , ... ) 
  | CASE <expression>
      WHEN { <expression> | <search_condition> } THEN { <expression> | NULL } [ ... ]
    [ ELSE { <expression> | NULL } ]
    END 
  | <literal>
  | <sql_function> 

<search_condition> ::= 
  {
    <expression> { = | > | < | >= | <= | <> | != | LIKE | NOT_LIKE | IN | NOT_IN | IS_NULL | IS_NOT_NULL | AND | OR | CONTAINS | BETWEEN } [ <expression> ]
  } [ { AND | OR } ... ] 

Examples

  1. Return all columns:
    SELECT * FROM Customers
  2. Rename a column:
    SELECT [GivenName] AS MY_GivenName FROM Customers
  3. Cast a column's data as a different data type:
    SELECT CAST(AnnualRevenue AS VARCHAR) AS Str_AnnualRevenue FROM Customers
  4. Search data:
    SELECT * FROM Customers WHERE GivenName = 'Cook, Brian';
  5. Return the number of items matching the query criteria:
    SELECT COUNT(*) AS MyCount FROM Customers 
  6. Return the number of unique items matching the query criteria:
    SELECT COUNT(DISTINCT GivenName) FROM Customers 
  7. Return the unique items matching the query criteria:
    SELECT DISTINCT GivenName FROM Customers 
  8. Summarize data:
    SELECT GivenName, MAX(AnnualRevenue) FROM Customers GROUP BY GivenName
    See Aggregate Functions for details.
  9. Retrieve data from multiple tables.
    SELECT i.DocNumber, c.CompanyName FROM Invoices i INNER JOIN Customers c ON i.CustomerRef=c.Id
    See JOIN Queries for details.
  10. Sort a result set in ascending order:
    SELECT Id, GivenName FROM Customers  ORDER BY GivenName ASC
  11. Restrict a result set to the specified number of rows:
    SELECT Id, GivenName FROM Customers LIMIT 10 
  12. Parameterize a query to pass in inputs at execution time. This enables you to create prepared statements and mitigate SQL injection attacks.
    SELECT * FROM Customers WHERE GivenName = @param
See Explicitly Caching Data for information on using the SELECT statement in offline mode.

Pseudo Columns

Some input-only fields are available in SELECT statements. These fields, called pseudo columns, do not appear as regular columns in the results, yet may be specified as part of the WHERE clause. You can use pseudo columns to access additional features from QuickBooks Online.

    SELECT * FROM Customers WHERE IncludeJobs = 'TRUE'
