Query technical documentation
The query editor automatically creates a technical documentation for each query. This technical documentation contains:
- the graphical representation of the query.
- the general information about the query (logical name and physical name of the query, type of query, analysis associated with the query, ...).
- the information specific to the query results (result items, query parameters, sort criteria, ...).
- the information about the query characteristics (selection conditions, groups, ...).
- the SQL code corresponding to the query.
This technical documentation can be configured. It can contain:
- the full information about the query.
- a selection of information.
Editing the technical documentation of current query in the editor
To edit the technical documentation of current query in the editor:
- On the "Home" tab, in the "General" group, expand and select "Print".
- Specify the information contained in this technical documentation.
- Choose how the technical documentation will be generated.
- Indicate whether this technical documentation should contain:
- PC Soft vocabulary, used by default.
- "generic" vocabulary (for example, the term "data file" will be replaced by "Table", "Item" by "Column", etc.
Remark: The print of the query representation can be configured according to:
- print areas.
- a specific layout. To define this layout, expand and select "Documentation layout".
Specifying the print areas of graphic representation
To specify the print areas of graphic representation:
- On the "Display" tab, in the "Help for edit" group, check "Print areas". A series of borders that represent the printable areas in the technical documentation will appear in the query editor.
- Reduce the display of graphic representation: on the "Display" tab, in the "Help for edit" group, modify the "Zoom" value (or use Ctrl + Mouse wheel) to see the entire query.
- With the mouse:
- move these borders to the desired location by keeping the mouse button down (the mouse cursor is black).
- choose the number of pages on which the graphic representation must be printed (the mouse cursor turns into a North-West/South-East double arrow).
