Connect SQL form - Completing the Open tab
You can use the Open tab to enter a SQL statement that opens a single row in the database and copies its column values as properties onto a clipboard page. To execute the SQL statement on this tab, an activity uses the RDB-Open method.
As a best practice, include only one SQL statement on this tab. If your situation requires multiple statements, place one statement each in separate Connect SQL rules. Your activity can cause the statements to be executed in the desired sequence. If your situation requires many statements executed in sequence, consider using a stored procedure.

more than one row to be retrieved, the RDB-Open method produces a fail status, and no
properties are added to the step page. Complete the
tab, if you want to search the database in a way that may
result in none, one, or multiple matches.
DATEdoes not directly correspond to any Pega Platform property type. Use syntax similar to the following as a workaround:
SELECT TIMESTAMP(RPT_DATE, '00.00.00') AS ".RPT_DATE"
Properties retrieved by browsing an external database are not tracked for changes by Declare Expression processing.

The results of the RDB-Open method are properties and values added to the step page (of the step that contains the RDB-Open method) for the selected row. (If the Step Page column of that step is blank, the system uses the primary page of the activity.)
