The outline for the FROM clause for a LEFT OUTER JOIN is

FROM “table1 name” LEFT OUTER JOIN “table2 name” ON “table1 name”.”foreign key” = “table2 name”.”primary key”

This is what I entered into a query yesterday. Yet, today when I edited the query in SQL view I saw

FROM { OJ "Persons" LEFT OUTER JOIN "Orders" ON "Persons"."P_ID" = "Orders"."P_ID" }

Braces and OJ were added. This is using LO I got a similar result when using SQL to create a RIGHT OUTER JOIN. Does anyone know where this is documented? It appears Base is adding this for clarity. Should this be included this in the documentation?



I see similar behavior with MSSQL Server and other db's. It probably should be mentioned that FROM and WHERE clauses will be parsed to show the best guess of what query should be and that text strings may be highlighted. It is somewhat useful for debugging a query but it could confuse a beginner who has not seen this before.
