Structure of a Query
The dataview query language is a simple, structured, custom query language for quickly creating views on your data. It supports:
- Fetching pages associated with tags, folders, links, and so on.
- Filtering pages / data by simple operations on fields, like comparison, existence checks, and so on.
- Sorting results based on fields.
The query language supports the following view types, described below:
- TABLE: The traditional view type; one row per data point, with several columns of field data.
- LIST: A list of pages which match the query. You can output a single associated value for each page.
- TASK: A list of tasks whose pages match the given query.
- CALENDAR: A calendar view displaying each hit via a dot on its reffered date

The general format for queries is:
```dataview TABLE|LIST|TASK <field> [AS "Column Name"], <field>, ..., <field> FROM <source> WHERE <expression> SORT <expression> [ASC/DESC] ... other data commands ```
Only the Query Type (table/list/task/calendar) statement is required - if the "from" statement is omitted, the query runs for all files in
your vault. You can specify data commands like
WHERE multiple times; they will run in the order they are written.
The most basic example of a dataview query is:
```dataview LIST ```
which will list all files in your vault. Find more examples here.
