Build a Report using SQL Editor

Let's say you have an Order_details raw table which you need to modify first using some SQL query and then use the final table to perform some analysis like "Product Category wise Total Orders".
  • Click on “+ Create Report” and choose SQL Editor.
  • Give a name to the Report and now you will land on the Report V2 -SQL Editor UI.
  • Now in the SQL Editor tab write the SQL query which you want to use to modify the Order_details table and click the Run button.
For eg: If you want to analyze only the North region order's data and also want to combine order_id and location_id columns to create a new column tracking_id then you can write the following Code
Select a.*, concat(a.order_id,'-',a.location_id) as tracking id
from orders_details
where a.region ='North';
  • You will now have a final table as the Output of the above SQL query.
  • Now go to the Visualization Tab below the Schema Browser tab and choose the Pie Chart option.
  • In the Build panel go to the Chart Setting section and select Measure column Count of Order_id in the Values section and select Product Category column in the Labels section.
  • Click on the Visualize Button and your Pie Chart will be ready showcasing "Product Category wise Total Orders" for only the North region as you require.
Product Category wise Total Orders
Note: SQL Reports in the new version is an update from the SQL Explores legacy feature.
