Hi Joel,

Currently the SQLQuery widget can only query MySQL database, but it has 
been designed to be able to query any other DB available from PHP with 
only some modification. So anyone who can do PHP code should be able to 
copy/paste the MYSQL code to whatever they want.

If MySQL is what you need (or if you add the DB format you want), then 
check the documentation at:

In short, you need to specify your:
server, user, password, DB and query

It will return your result in a shared resource. Then you ca do whatever 
you want with it. For example put it in a map if it had lat/lon fields 
with the MapImageSharedResource widget.

Or in a table with the Table widget:
