About SQQL Select 

Salesforce’s Apex SOQL uses the following Syntax for the SOQL Select statement:

SELECT someField
FROM someObject
WHERE someCondition

Here's some helpful tips on
SOQL’s SELECT statement:

  • The syntax is not case sensitive, for example: SELECT = select.
  • Currently, SOQL statements cannot exceed 10,000 characters, but the good news is that Salesforce has promised to raise the limit to up to 20,000 characters, soon.
  • The result is stored in a result table, called the result-set.
  • Results are generally not ordered unless you use an ORDER BY clause in the query
