Hi @KurtYoung , thank your for reviewing. I'm not sure about that. Do you
mean omitting the "FROM" syntax ? But it will be hard to validate SQL syntax.
Because the query can follow a WHERE clause or JOIN/UNION with other tables.
For example, it's wired and hard to validate the query like this:
mytable.sql("SELECT * WHERE a > 13 UNION SELECT * FROM TABLE_B")
I think allowing query on other tables is fine here. What do you think ?
