When you're working in Stonefield Query Studio, it's sometimes useful to see the contents of a table or a field so you can understand the contents better than the name alone implies. To retrieve the contents of the selected table, choose View Table Contents from the Objects or shortcut menus or click the View Contents button () in the toolbar. The contents of the table are displayed in a window, up to a maximum of 1,000 records.

You can also display the contents of just the selected field by choosing the View Field Contents from the Objects or shortcut menus.

If the selected field is a string of more than 254 characters, its content for the selected record is shown at the bottom of the dialog.

You cannot view the contents of a table with more than 255 fields; attempting to do so results in a "too many columns" warning message.
