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

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?

Hi Dan

The use of ODBC conventions, '{ OF' for example, is controlled with an
option on the ODB file.

Open the ODB.
Open the dialog for options:
Edit>Database>Advanced Options


Is it a good idea to have the three conventions checked that are listed there? Why or why not?
