What is SQL?

SQL means Structured Query Language. A computer language is designed to communicate and handle the data in the database.
According to the ANSI (American National Standards Institute), it is the standard language in a relational database system.
The SQL is used to store, manipulate, and retrieve the data in a relational database system. The database system is a computer program that provides database services to other programs and computers.
SQL is not the programming language. It is the query language. Moreover, the majority of database systems are compatible with SQL.
Who invented the SQL?
Donald D. Chamberlin and Raymond F. Boyce designed the SQL.
SQL query example.
In SQL, the syntax is
SELECT column1, column2 FROM table1, table2 WHERE column2='value';

SQL code beautification and formation

Before going deeper into the SQL code beautification and formation. The first question that arises is
What are beautification and formating in code means, and why is it important?
When the programmer writes a code, it can be done in two ways. One way is to do the code for humans, and the second is to do it for computers and browsers search engines because humans and systems view the code differently.
It is always challenging to do the code. Even the small, tiny mistake makes your code disfunction. Therefore, the programmer does the coding in a way that the human eye can read it. It includes the line breaks, comments, commas, and spaces to format the code in an organized manner. The code delivers the intent of what the programmer wants to offer. It is readable to the eye. Also, in the future, you can understand the hierarchy of code. Even though you are an experienced programmer, if you do not properly format the code, your job will be at risk.
However, computers, browsers, search engines see the code differently.
All the extra elements you type in your code increase file size. The elements like line breaks, comments, commas, and spaces that the programmer adds to format the code, take space and make your code file size large. These elements are the extra elements in the computer systems' eyes, browsers, and search engines. When these systems read the code file, they even have to read these elements. That eventually affects the efficiency and performance of the code. Therefore, it is always preferred to minify the code.

How do you beautify/format the SQL code?

If you are starting a new project, you can write the code correctly from the initial stage. However, if you have already minified your SQL code, you can either re-write it, manually minify the code, or use some online tool to beautify or format your minified SQL code.
Manually beautify or format your minified SQL code is a time-consuming process, and there is always a chance of human error. So it is preferred to use some proper online tools to beautify and adequately format your minified SQL code. Avoid any poor SQL formatter.

How to beautify/format the SQL code by using the online SQL beautifier/formatter tool?

You can beautify/format the SQL code by doing the following steps.

  • Open the SQL Beautify online tool.
  • You can either copy-paste the SQL code, load it from the URL, or use the "browse" option to upload the file.
  • Click on the "Beautify" button. To beautify and format your minified SQL code.
  • The resulted code will be shown in the "Result" section.
  • Please copy the code, and paste it into the desired location.

How to use the load sample data option in the SQL beautifier/formatter Tool?

Coding is crucial. A little mistake sometimes gives devastating results.
The load sample data option helps get the beautifier/formatter results and differentiate between best and poor SQL formatter.
For that,

  • Click on the "load sample data" button.
  • A sample data will be shown on the upper portion.
  • Click on the "Beautify" button. To beautify and format your minified SQL code.
  • The result will be displayed in the "Result" section.
Do we keep a copy of your SQL code?
Protecting user trust is our top priority. We do not keep a copy of the SQL code that the user uploads for the formatting process.
Note: The term beautify/format/un-minify the code, uses in the same sense.
