The ability to use SQL statements is not available for databases in Blackbaud Hosting Services due to security policies.

Organizations that use The Raiser's Edge NXT or The Financial Edge NXT may be able to utilize Blackbaud's Sky API to query information in the database. Check out our SKY API Frequently asked questions for NXT Solutions.

You may be able to set up a local standalone server to query the database locally if you have purchased a software license and have a computer that meets the system requirements.  The instructions and system requirements can be viewed here: How to restore a Blackbaud Hosting Services backup locally

Contact Blackbaud sales if you are interested in purchasing a software license so you can download the software. Email solutions@blackbaud.com or call 800.443.9441.
