Ability to "preview run" and get the SQL code

In SPSS Modeler, you can define a flow with a database as source, put a terminal node and then click a purple hexagonal icon in the toolbar. Then, SPSS Modeler displays the SQL which solves the flow (known as "SQL Pushback") without the need of running the SQL command.


In Watson Studio Desktop 1.0, you don't have this option. To display the SQL code, the only option is to run the flow.
