AGENDA Quick basic overview of Query process Files/Libraries and Structure Work through several common queries You take it from there !!
Why Query? Queries allow you to access information that you cannot currently access/view using standard AgVantage reports. It is a supplemental, useful tool for pulling data into files and reports based on the information you want to see.
Terminology Libraries, Files, Records and Fields I-Series – Stores information much like a file cabinet Libraries – AgVantage stores your information in a company library named CO*DATA where * is your company letter, number or a symbol. COUDATA COBDATA COSDATA iSeries
Terminology Libraries, Files, Records and Fields Files – A group of records with related information on one topic similar to a file folder. Master Files – U4CSTMR Customer Master Transaction Files – U4TRND A/R Transaction COUDATA
Terminology Libraries, Files, Records and Fields Records – A smaller grouping of information on one topic within a file. In the customer file, each record contains information about one customer. –Similar to a piece of paper Fields – One piece of information within a record. –Similar to the words on a piece of paper –Customer name, address, etc. U4CSTMR Doe Jane
