It is used, for example, to determine the syntax for OUTER JOINs and for table creation/reorganizations (i.e., the syntax of CREATE TABLE, CREATE INDEX, etc.).

When the SQL Server version Azure is selected, the code is generated as if SQL Server 2012 or higher is selected. The exception to this is, that the temporary tables that are created during the reorganization process are created with a clustered index given related restrictions of SQL Azure.

Every new version of the DBMS has new features that are used by GeneXus, which generates different SQL sentences or considers properties that can be applied to the new version.
