To create an Ad Hoc query, select one or more Selection and Output fields from the top left-hand pane (1). The chosen Selection fields will appear in the selection area (or output area) in the top right-hand pane (2). If fields have both values and texts, you can specify whether only the text, only the value, or both are used.
In the output preview section at the bottom of the Ad Hoc Query screen (3), you can display real data in the Output fields.
Unlike other reporting tools, the selection is made directly from the database, so data is reported in real time. Personnel numbers are only selected if they meet the specified criteria and if the user has permission to see the data.
