Write a query to import data

Now that the Postgres database is connected to Row Zero, write a query to pull data into the spreadsheet. First select the 'Schema' from the drop down. Write a query in the query editor. The easiest query to write is the 'select *' statement, which pulls in the entire table. Example:

select * from TABLENAME

Row Zero is equipped to handle large data sets and will easily ingest the entirety of a table. Write more complicated queries to pull in various subsets of data stored in a Postgres Database. All results will be displayed in the connected data table in the spreadsheet.
