It all depends how you enter it. The pasted value can consist of column, alias and column, table and column, schema and table and column parts depending on how tables are referenced in the FROM or JOIN clauses (similar in INSERT, DELETE and UPDATE).

Examples

1. Column name only
SELECT * FROM MyTable WHERE {popup here} select MyColumn and you get something like
SELECT * FROM MyTable WHERE MyColumn = 5

2. Alias and column name
SELECT * FROM MyTable AS tab WHERE {popup here} select MyColumn and you get something like
SELECT * FROM MyTable WHERE tab.MyColumn = 5

3. Two tables
SELECT * FROM MyTable1, MyTable2 WHERE {popup here} select MyTable1 column MyColumn and you get something like
SELECT * FROM MyTable1, MyTable2 WHERE MyTable1.MyColumn = 5

then type AND
SELECT * FROM MyTable1, MyTable2 WHERE MyTable1.MyColumn = 5 AND {popup}

after that select MyTable2 column MyColumn2 and you get something like
SELECT * FROM MyTable1, MyTable2 WHERE MyTable1.MyColumn = 5 AND MyTable2.MyColumn2 = 10


4. Two tables with fully qualified names and 1 alias
SELECT * FROM Schema1.MyTable1 JOIN Schema1.MyTable2 AS tab2 ON {popup here} select "MyTable1.MyColumn = MyTable2.MyColumn" and you get

SELECT * FROM Schema1.MyTable1 JOIN Schema1.MyTable2 AS tab2 ON Schema1.MyTable1.MyColumn = tab2.MyColumn



Hope this helps.

Also, in case if you work with Oracle and selected tables or column names contain spaces then SQL Assistant automatically encloses such names in double quotes (for example, "My Column"). In case if you work with SQL Server and selected tables or column names contain spaces then SQL Assistant automatically encloses them in brackets (for example, [My Column]).
