Manage Custom Queries

When you are required to shape the query data at the level of a data source, you can create custom queries by expanding the Queries category and clicking the report-wizard-multi-query-page-icon-add button. This will invoke the Query Builder where you can create complex queries by joining multiple tables, filtering, sorting and grouping their data, as well as calculating various aggregate functions.

To customize an existing query using the Query Builder, click the report-wizard-multi-query-page-icon-edit button.

To delete a query, click the report-wizard-multi-query-page-icon-remove button.

On finishing the wizard, each of the selected data items will be included into a separate query.
