Use the word SELECT to select what you want from the database.
|SQL Syntax||What it Does||Example|
|SELECT *||Selects all; the * sign means all in SQL||SELECT * FROM email_activities;|
|SELECT * FROM table||Selects everything from a specific table||SELECT * FROM recipients|
|SELECT column FROM table;||Selects a specific column from a table||SELECT firstname FROM users;|
|SELECT column1, column2 FROM table;||Selects 2 columns from the table||SELECT firstname, age FROM users;|
Example - "I want to select all opens from the email activities table"
Example - "I want to select bounces and spam reports from the email activities table"
SELECT bounces, spam_reports
Commas are used to separate 2 different columns you want to select from the table.
Apply conditions to filter your results:
Example - "I want to see how many clicks come from Los Angeles"
WHERE city = 'Los Angeles';
You can also add another conditional to filter your results further:
Example - "I want to see how many clicks from a specific browser come from Los Angeles"
WHERE city = 'Los Angeles'
AND Browser = 'Chrome 62';
