Web Templates

Hi guys!

how could I define a generic web template(using WAD 7.0, not linking the data providers to a specific query) and then asign that template to a group of queries?. I'm not sure If I'm being clear, I do not want to generate a separate instance of web template for each query. I want a template and then a group of queries using that one(like it happens with default adhoc template when you execute a query from query designer).

Thanks a lot!!!!!

    Hi Martin

    Easiest solution would be to just modify the 0ANALYSIS_PATTERN template, this way all queries will reflect the changes made to that template. Probably want to back it up first though. However if you only want certain queries to run off that template then your could do the following:

    Create the template you want (Template A), then create a second template (Template B) that only contains the Web Template web item and point that at Template A.Then for each report just add your query as the DP for Template B as save it under a new name. Even though each query will have its own template, changes will only need to be made to Template A.

    Hope this helps

      Josh,

      thanks!! it very helpful your answer.

      What I'm trying to do now is to create some templates and run queries on them without hardcoding the link and not using subtemplates as you say. For example; template A for queries about sales and template B for queries about plant maintenance(note I'm saying 'queries' without specify the link between template and query). I've already done that manually modifying the url by adding &template=templateA....

      Thanks again!
