For more information on how to use this operator, take a look at the guide: Operator


If you pass fields to selected_fields which are in different order than the order of columns already in BQ table, the data will still be in the order of BQ table. For example if the BQ table has 3 columns as [A,B,C] and you pass ‘B,A’ in the selected_fields the data would still be of the form 'A,B' and passed through this form to MySQL
