That is not what I need. When I push a button on a form, I need some SQL statement(s) to be sent to the server. Is this possible?

Hi Ryan,

In Access I can runn a passthrough query to execute SQL commands on a
true DB server. Is this possible in Base? I have a MariaDB server and
want to use Base to create forms for accessing it, but need to run SQL
commands to encrypt and decrypt certain data, so linking the tables
won't work.

There is an option to execute SQL directly.

If you are just carrying out a select query, you can do this via the
"Construct a query in SQL mode"

Note that only select queries are supported via the Query GUI. Use the

SQL does not replace a command line client console, so your mileage as
to what you want to actually achieve might vary.
