The SQL tab allows you to modify the SQL queries manually. The changes in this tab automatically appear in the Query Designer tab.
To switch between the tables, use the Tables list panel on the left.
This feature allows you to limit the number of records to be displayed on the List, Print, Export, Details pages. It can be useful if you need to speed up the loading of the webpage; or when your chart has too many items in it, and you need to show only the most significant ones. It also works with the List pages added to the Dashboard.
The search and filters are applied first, and then the results are limited to first "N" rows.
This option works with all ASPRunnerPro project items except with the reports that have group fields selected.
When you connect to databases like DB2, Oracle or PostgreSQL, and your SQL query contains aliases, we recommend to enclose them in double-quotes. Here is an example:
If the field was assigned an alias in the SQL query, then the values array gets the alias instead of the field name from the database. E.g., if you have an SQL query SELECT salesrep_id AS Inv_Salesrep ..., you should use values("Inv_Salesrep").
In the example above, the alias Discount is assigned to the calculated field Price*0.1.
For more complicated queries, wrap the condition with parentheses:
•Stored procedure calls;
Here is how you can create a query in MS Access (other database types provide similar options):
1. Run MS Access and create a new query. Switch to SQL view.
2. Insert your SQL query there.
3. Save this query as qryNewQuery.
4. Run ASPRunnerPro and use qryNewQuery as a datasource table.
