Certain features in web-based  SQL query builder platforms allow users to understand and execute queries easily. A visual SQL query builder, for instance, lets you make SQL select statements by dragging and dropping database tables from schema browsers to the platform. From there, the query builder automatically creates join conditions based on foreign and primary keys between two tables. High-end SQL query builders support inner, left outer, full outer, and right outer join, and they provide users the capability of opening multiple query tabs while making it possible to work on them at the same time.

Live data preview is a feature that lets you apply different filter conditions on the live data, un-select or select columns, and sort results. All these functions are possible even if you lack SQL knowledge. Users may export data from the data preview window into different formats, like HTML, PDF, and CSV, or export it to an external storage unit like Google Drive.
