I found that creating a "Data Container" by extending the %DeepSee.DataConnector class allowed me to make an SQL based "source" where I could then create the dynamic filtering I wanted within the SQL of the container, and the balance of the IRIS Business Intelligence machinery would work just fine.

Hello -

There are multiple means of rendering a table in a "grid", from a simple html table populated with an SQL query, to ZEN "Grid" object

For the html table, the following code would give you a table from the SQL query

<script language=SQL name="query">
SELECT * FROM User.DataTable
<table border=1 bgcolor="">
 <csp:while counter=queryCol condition="(queryCol<query.GetColumnCount())">
  <th align=left><b>#(query.GetColumnHeader(queryCol))#</b></th>

 <csp:while counter=queryRow condition=query.Next()>
 <tr class='#($S(queryRow#2:"DarkRow",1:"LightRow"))#'>
  <csp:while counter=queryCol condition="(queryCol<query.GetColumnCount())">


For the ZEN example, take a look at your "local" sample page:  <localhost>/csp/samples/ZENTest.DynaGridTest.cls

Hi Scott -

Part of this depends on "how" (from what context) did you create your "export"

Assuming that you mean that you created an "export" from the System Management Portal:

Then review the documentation that can be found:


which will talk about the "Deployment" process for an "exported production"

Assuming that you are talking about an "export" from Studio, then the specifics of how a Business Operation is configured will be in the class definition of the Production Class (along with the actually configured Business Service/Operation class definitions (if they aren't standard InterSystems provided classes : i.e. If you have created your own FTP Operation class as opposed to using the FTP operation class InterSystems ships with the product)):

Then in this case you are looking at a more manual code promotion process, which involves importing from within Studio and recompiling things. This methodology is can work, but has a lot more moving parts (and therefor more "gotcha's" to look out for)
