Custom Query Fragments

You can create 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 enter your SQL Search, a starting point for your Model Script, or the existing template fragments that correspond to the specific types of element being reported.

Define a Template Selector


·Custom Queries and the Custom template section can only be used in Template Fragments; they cannot be used in normal, full-document templates
·Custom Queries can reference the ID of the element or Package currently being processed by the document template, using the #OBJECTID# or #PACKAGEID# macros
·#Branch# gets the IDs of the child Packages of the current Package being processed, working recursively down to the lowest level of sub-Package; this is only valid when processing a Package - elements return a 0 value
·#UserName# gets the name of the user logged into version control
·#Author# takes the user name from the Author field in the General page of the Options dialog, so the defined search can be performed on objects created by that user (this value can be manually re-set in the Options dialog)
·#Package# gets the package_ID of the currently-selected Package
