hEIDI Projects

It is possible to create hEIDI projects in order to organise data. For now, data consist of SQL queries… To create a Project, click right in the Project window or choose File > New Project menu and only specify the project name in the wizard.

SQL Queries

Once the connection is successful, the first simple feature is to explore the database or create SQL queries. Information on MSI database and its model is available here .

You can create new SQL files from hEIDI project (File > New File menu then choose Empty File or directly New Empty File from hEIDI Project window) . It is also possible to select a Table under database connection and choose Veiw Data.
