bq_query: Submit query to BigQuery

Description Usage Arguments Value Examples

Description

These submit a query (using bq_perform_query()) and then wait for it complete (with bq_job_wait()). All BigQuery queries save their results into a table (temporary or otherwise), so these functions return a bq_table which you can then query for more information.

  quiet = NA)

Arguments

x

Either a project (a string) or a bq_dataset.

query

SQL query string.

destination_table

...

quiet

If FALSE, displays progress bar; if TRUE is silent; if NA displays progress bar only for long-running jobs.
