NAV 2013 Query

Hi all,

Let's try to create a new query (new object released with NAV 2013) and use that query in a chart.

For example suppose i want to display the Top 10 item by sales in a period say last 10 days.

I will open the developer environment of NAV 2013 and start creating a query.

As i require Top 10 items my data items will be Value Entry and Item.

From these tables i will require Item Sales Amount (Actual) and Item Description to display on the chart.

Below is the screen shot of how my query look like.

As i require Total of Sales Amount Actual i added the method type as Totals and Method as SUM and i grouped the Query by Item No.

For Filtering based on date i used posting date from Value entry table.

Let's try to run the query and see the output.

As you can see in the output of the query above that it returns the First 1000 Rows which is not required in my case.

So let's go back to query and go to query properties  Here as shown below i will set the property TopNumberofRows to 10.

Then the query will show the Top 10 Records from the database as shown below.

So we are done with query. Now lets go to role tailored client and start creating chart using this query object.

As you can see that the chart accept only two data source table & query.

I started creating a chart. Below are the field values that i set -

1) ID - Test.
2) Name - Item By Sales - Last 10 Days
3) Source Type - Query.
4) Source ID - 50001.
6) Filters - Posting Date = w-10D..w (as i want to show the top sales in last 10 days)
7) Required Measure - Sum_Sales_Amount_Actual (SUM (aggregation), Graph type (Column) and Caption sales Amount).
8)Y axis Caption - sales amount.
9)X Axis Item No or Item Description.

Here is the image of how the chart in chart builder look like.

Now i will add this chart to role center page and lets see what we get in output.

Here is the output...

The whole process is also available in below video.
