This section was created to facilitate working directly with the database tables, and fields.

Raw Teble Editor

The page displayed above contains two master panes. The left pane displays a list of all tables that are available for editing in your store. The contents of the individual tables, selected from the list on the left, are displayed in a pane on the right, accessible via 3, individually selectable, tabs, some containing additionally select-able sub-tabs.

  • The "Data" tab displays all data stored in the selected table, displayed via columns, and cells.
  • The "DDL" tab displays the table's data structure, or metadata, via the use of a Data Definition Language (a formal language for describing data, or information structures, within a database). "DDL" typically consists of a subset of SQL instructions.
  • The "Fields" tab displays the data within the table, via the use of fields.

If more than one table is simultaneously selected, the content of each table will be displayed in separate tabs. Regardless of what tables are selected, there are some general export options that are commonly available within Store Manager, including the "Export to Excel / HTML", and the "Edit-as-HTML" options. The "Edit as HTML" option is active within the "Data" tab of the table selected. It subsequently opens the HTML Editor, which facilitates the editing of text within the table, and allows to view cell contents.
