Hello guys,
I have a query that I use in a report
select employee_number, salary , notes from employee_table_1
union All
select employee_number, salary , notes from employee_table_2
I would like to build a form depending on this query.
any idea ? I don't intend to delete or modify any data in this form
I am using Form Builder 6i

How about creating a view on that query and then a block based on the view?

I've just done that, for testing purposes. Works well.

  • Create a new form
  • Manually create data block (as the Wizard won't offer "FROM clause query").
  • Choose "Query data source type"
  • Write your query into "Query data source name"
  • All columns you used in a query should be specified in "Query data source columns"
  • Create a canvas
  • Use Layout wizard to help you create layout
  • That's it; run the form
A suggestion: Forms offers great online Help system - use it! The simplest way in this case is to open data block's property palette window, click to "Query data source type" and press F1 which will invoke help. Read it, follow links it suggests, educate yourself.

Good luck!
