How to execute a custom SQL request?

by Vasiliy Kharitonov

You can use SQL Command Editor to execute a custom SQL query. Open it via transaction ST04, navigate to Performance -> Additional Functions -> SQL Command Editor. There you can provide your query in the textarea Input Query. Then press Execute (F8) to send it to the database.

E.g. query SELECT COUNT(*) FROM "/SCWM/ORDIM_C" WHERE “LGNUM”='0001' will show how many completed tasks there are in the warehouse number 0001 (SAP EWM).

This can be useful to create complex reports with joints of multiple tables automatically analyzing data with the certain perspective. Result can be easily exported to an Excel sheet via corresponding button.
