The simplest query statement is the one that selects all columns of all rows from a single table: "SELECT * FROM tableName;". The (*) in the SELECT clause tells the query to return all columns. The missing WHERE clause tells the query to return all rows in specified table. The tutorial exercise below returns all columns and all rows from table "fyi_links":

mysql> SELECT * FROM fyi_links;
