You can set several options
that determine how queries run, how they appear onscreen, and how
they are saved.
On the Task Pane Tab
You can hide or display
the query node on the Map Explorer tab
of the Task Pane.
Note The Queries option
that appears under the Data Sources category
is for database queries.
Options you set on the Task
Pane tab apply to a single user's AutoCAD Map 3D environment.
All drawings opened by a particular user display these settings,
but they do not affect others who open the same drawings.
On the Query Tab
You can set specific
query options, including the default joining operator, display parameters
for preview queries, and options for location conditions.
Options you set on the Query tab
apply only to the current drawing. Each time you open this drawing,
these settings take effect, but they do not affect other drawings.
On the Save Back Tab
You can set options that
determine if queried objects are added to the save set.
Options you set on the Save
Back tab apply only to the current drawing. Each time
you open this drawing, these settings take effect, but they do not
affect other drawings.
On the System Tab
You can specify a default
directory for externally saved queries.
