Use Advanced Caml Editor

Clicking the "Use Advanced Caml Editor" option will enable the Query CAML and Query Options CAML windows.

 Query CAML - The Sharepoint Source allows users to configure Collaborative Application Marchup Language. CAML is similar to XML and used to perform query operations on lists. (Note - Users must surround their queries with <Query></Query> tags.)

 Query Options CAML - Users can add options to their CAML queries. (Note: Users do not need to add the opening and closing query options tag in the query options editor.)

For more information about using CAML, please see the MSDN article located here.
