The yield() function indicates the input tables received should be delivered as a result of the query. Yield outputs the input stream unmodified. A query may have multiple results, each identified by the name provided to the yield() function.

yield() is implicit for queries that do only one thing and are only needed when using multiple sources in a query. With multiple sources, yield() is required to specify what is returned, and what name to give it.



A unique name for the yielded results. Defaults to "_results".
