What is an SQL file?

A SQL file is a file written in SQL (Structured Query Language). It contains SQL code used to modify the contents of a relational database. SQL files may also contain statements for creating or modifying database structures, insertions, updates, deletions, and other SQL operations.

SQL files can be read by any SQL-compatible database program, including FileMaker and MySQL. They can be edited using any text editor.
