A query is a subset of your database to use when sending a mailing, preparing a report, or exporting certain records. Begin by determining the query criteria. Then, select the query filters to define the criteria. After selecting a filter, select the appropriate operator. To examine the results in a certain order, select the Sort tab and add the field. Add to the Output only the field(s) needed to determine if the query includes the correct records.

It's important to remember that Query is not a report, a mailing list, a spreadsheet maker, or an export. Query is a tool to group records that meet specified criteria. Then the query can be used with Reports, Export, Mail, and other tools to work with the data.
