PROBLEM: How to use SQL queries within the Windchill Quality Solutions product? (I'm working with v.10.0 running on SQL Server 2008.)
SITUATION: Am tasked to create reports and graphs of some fairly simple data. I find it difficult to achieve within the WQS Reporting/Graphing structure. Example: Report Incidents that are not Closed but that are: a. Less than 30 days old. b. Between 31 and 60 days old. c. Older than 61 days. Create Graph of same. Should be easy, but is not.
SOLUTION SO FAR: Go outside the WQS application and run queries on the SQL Server database.
Am curious as to why PTC did not build the ability to do SQL queries into the application. Or, perhaps I just cannot find where to plug in the queries.
Any comments or suggestions?
