Sql version of CF

May 6, 2011 5:20 AM



The SQL commands one would execute in CF would be considered proprietary?  Are they T-SQL? ANSI SQL?


Another words if you had to define the syntax of a SQL statements inside a cquery tag, what what you call that SQL?

    They're just passed, unmolested, to the DB driver, which passes them to the DB.  CF itself doesn't execute the SQL.

    The syntax of the query you have within a cfquery tag really depends on the type of database that you're querying.  So inside the cfquery tag, you're identifying the datasource="db_name".  Over in the CF Administrator, you're setting up the type of database (Access, MS SQL), defining the correct driver, and naming the db, e.g. "db_name".


    e.g. If you're writing a query for Access, you would use syntax appropriate for Access.  SQL


    e.g. If you're writing a query for MS SQL 2008, would use syntax appropriate for MS SQL 2008. T-SQL
