Query Area for InfoSet QueryLocate this document in the navigation structure


After starting the InfoSet Query, the initial screen is displayed. The initial screen is divided into three areas, containing all the necessary information to create, change and execute a query. Aside from a few dialog boxes, this is the only screen for the InfoSet Query.

The current InfoSet is displayed in the top left-hand corner of screen. You can choose between three display options:

  • An InfoSet overview tree, containing the field groups that belong to the InfoSet (default setting)

  • Structure of the logical database

  • Field Catalog

You can open another screen area under the InfoSet display, to display technical information on a selected field.

The selections used as options for reading the dataset are displayed in the top right-hand corner of the screen. Selections are criteria according to which the report evaluates the database and generates a result list.

The output preview is displayed in the lower area of the screen, as long as output fields have been selected. You can edit the output at this point. For example, you can change the order of the columns, form totals and subtotals or display the results list of the query.

Additional Functions

You can use the function Start of the navigation path Jump Next navigation step Variant Maintenance End of the navigation path to maintain variants for a query.

The Start of the navigation path Goto Next navigation step Report Assignment End of the navigation path function can be used to maintain entries in the Report-Report-Interface.


The query loaded as a template (and not saved) or the last one used is always the one to be maintained. This means that you can make the entries straight after loading a query.
