To start a new statement:

1. From the menu bar, choose Statement, New.

You need only perform this step if the SQL Definer window is already open. If you have just started the SQL Definer, this step is performed automatically.

2. On the dialog that appears, indicate what type of statement you want to build (SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE or DELETE), and (optionally) a statement name. The optional name only serves within the SQL Definer to display meaningful names for statements. It is not stored in the repository and makes no difference to the SQL output of the SQL Definer.
