How can I run an ad-hoc SQL query within TntMPD?

Under the "File" menu, click on "Utilities", then click on "Run Query...".

(Note:  If you run a query that changes data, you should also update the "LastEdit" field (to the current time) of each record you modify.  Otherwise TntSync won't know the record changed.  Also, if you might also need to run "File | Utilities | Maintenance" and recalculate some contact fields.)

I have 244 gift records that are incorrectly flagged as AvailableOnWeb. I can identify them via the memo.

SELECT * FROM Gift

WHERE [Gift].[Memo] = "not available" AND  [Gift].[AvailableOnWeb] = TRUE;

Instead of manually going through each record in the GUI and unchecking the box, I was hoping to update this using the following update query.

UPDATE Gift SET Gift.AvailableOnWeb = FALSE, Gift.LastEdit = NOW()

WHERE [Gift].[Memo] = "not available" AND  [Gift].[AvailableOnWeb] = TRUE;

However, after saving this query, why does the Run (and Rename, FWIW) button remain disabled?

I didn't want to make Update Queries too easy to run ... safety reasons.  So to run your update query, you have to double-click on its entry in the Queries list to the left.
