Custom Query Fragments

You can create RTF Template Fragments to return data from SQL queries, or from model Scripts. The first step in defining such fragments is to use the Custom Query settings to either enter your SQL Search, or enter a starting point for your model Script.

Notes

Custom Queries and the Custom template section can only be used in Template Fragments; they cannot be used in standard RTF Templates
Custom Queries can reference the ID of the element or package currently being processed by the RTF Template, using the #OBJECTID# or #PACKAGEID# macros
