For example, the user below has permissions to both Mass Update Student Data (STU), as well as the Query Change Command. They will also be able to use the Query Change command to change data in the STU table.

All Query Change Commands are logged in the LOG table with the Aeries Query, the equivalent SQL statement, and the numbers of records changed.
