Use this tab to work in Query Language view. You can work in Query Language view to compose or edit a query manually using WBEM Query Language (WQL) commands. A complete description of WQL is found in the Microsoft SMS 2.0 Toolkit.
Caution Use Query Language view only if you have a good working knowledge of WQL. If you enter an invalid query (for example, one that is not syntactically correct), you will get an error message. If the query statement you edit uses features of WQL that are not supported in design view, you cannot return to design view. However, you can still save and run the query.
