Sure, let's start by writing a basic SQL SELECT statement and then I'll convert it into markdown:

SELECT column_name1, column_name2
FROM table_name
WHERE condition;

The SELECT statement is used to select data from a database. The data returned is stored in a result table, called the result-set.

Here's the syntax for the SELECT statement:

SELECT columnName1, columnName2
FROM tableName
WHERE condition;
  • columnName1, columnName2: These are the names of the columns from where you want to select the data.

  • tableName: This is the name of the table from which you want to select the data.

  • condition: This is a condition that must be fulfilled for the data to be selected.

In this SQL statement, data from columnName1 and columnName2 will be selected from the tableName where the condition is true.
