Software generating SQL syntax

Hi there, what would be the "best" software out there that would automatically help me generate SQL syntax (so I don't have to type it). A query builder that would let me attach pretty much any kind of table (oracle, sql, etc.) and that would have a nice GUI to help me easily generate SQL syntax. Thanks

Hello GPSAddict,

Not "free", but if you already have the "pro" version of Office installed, Access can actually do a lot for you
here.  Access can link tables from pretty much all of the major database platforms, and has a reasonably
easy to use GUI for building queries, and it gives you a view to see what SQL it built behind the scenes.
The SQL is in the Jet dialect, but it shouldn't take much (most of the time, anyway) to port that to the SQL
dialect you need (T-SQL, PL/SQL, etc.).

I have not used it myself, but you might want to check whether the OpenOffice database app offers similar
functionality.  If it does, then that would be a free option...
