Querying the Database
Queries are similar to filters in that they extract information based on criteria that you specify. One benefit of using a query over a filter is that you can save your settings and use the same query again. For example, if you often need to view records of customers in Ohio and Kentucky, you could create the query and save it. The next time you need this information, you can simply open the query and use it again. Saved queries are also handy for creating reports.
