Specifies whether the query is private.
Usage
To specify this query is private, use the following syntax:
Query name(formal_spec) As classname [ Private ]
{
   //implementation
}
Otherwise, omit this keyword or place the word Not immediately before the keyword.
Details
Private class members can be used only by other members of the same class (or its subclasses). Note that other languages often use the word protected to describe this kind of visibility and use the word private to mean invisibility from subclasses.
Default
If you omit this keyword, this query is not private.
