Query Snowflake

The following section provides examples of creating basic CRUD queries for Snowflake.

Fetch data

SELECT * FROM customer
OFFSET {{ CustomerTable.pageOffset }} ROWS
FETCH NEXT {{ CustomerTable.pageSize }} ROWS ONLY;

In the above example, CustomerTable is the name of the Table widget used to display the data using server-side pagination to control how much data is queried at once.

Insert data

INSERT INTO customer
(id, name, address, email)
{{ NameInput.text }},
{{ AddressInput.text }},
{{ EmailInput.text }}

In the above example, NameInput, AddressInput, and EmailInput are the names of the widgets used to capture input from the user for name, address, and email fields, respectively.

Update data

UPDATE customer
SET email = {{ EmailInput.text }}
WHERE id = {{ }};

In the above example, EmailInput is the name of the Input widget used to capture the email entered by the user. CustomerTable is the Table widget where the user selects the row to update the user's email.

Delete data

DELETE FROM customer WHERE id = {{ }};

In the above example, CustomerTable is the name of the Table widget where the user selects the row for deletion.
