SQL Reserved Words

A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

The following list includes all words reserved by the Microsoft Jet database engine for use in SQL statements . The words in the list that are not in all uppercase letters are also reserved by other applications. Consequently, the individual Help topics for these words provide general descriptions that do not focus on SQL usage.

 Note   Words followed by an asterisk (*) are reserved but currently have no meaning in the context of a Microsoft® Jet SQL statement (for example, Level and TableID). Words that are not underlined do not have linked explanations.
