Why do you think that this is an urgent issue? Does your report work? I suppose so, because this "symbol" won't prevent it from being executed. So, it is not urgent at all.

Anyway: here's a copy-paste from (I believe) Reports Help (but I'm not 100% sure; I have it in my "home" library, but I don't have Reports installation here). It is a non-linkable query symbol.

Quote:
A non-linkable query is a detail query that contains column objects that prevent the query from being linked to via a column-to-column link (when you create a column-to-column link, Reports Builder adds a WHERE clause to your query). If you attempt to create such a link, a message dialog box displays, which prompts you to choose whether to create a group-to-group query (using the parent groups), or to cancel the operation. A non-linkable query displays a non-linkable icon in its title bar (C/D).

Instead, you can create a group-to-group link (when you create a group-to-group link, Reports Builder does not add a WHERE clause to your query) between the two queries and add a WHERE clause to the child query's SELECT statement, using a bind variable to reference the parent column.

For example, suppose you want to create a column-to-column link between the ADDRESS.STREET column in your child query and the LOC1 column in your parent query. You can create a group-to-group link, and then modify the child query SQL statement to say: SELECT * FROM EMP E WHERE E.ADDRESS.STREET = :LOC1

Explain what? What did you not understand? Now you have the keyword ("non-linkable query") so - Google for it!

OK, but that really is not a problem. The report will run successfully, regardless that symbol. What else do you want?

Please find herewith attached screenshot.

As my observation.

when you used function in a Report WHERE clause then this symbol 'll appear & when you remove this it'll disappear.Try it.

return number
is
begin
return n*n;

What do you mean by "which types of functions"?

As far as I can tell, functions in WHERE clause have nothing to do with a non-linkable query symbol.

Yes.Littlefoot you are right.

Please find herewith attached screenshot.
/forum/fa/9345/0/

Select empno from Emp
where empno < >100 )


I analysis again why this symbol came.
First - Put < > (Not Equal to sign with space)
Second - then Click to Parameter Form
Third - Again click to Data Model then this symbol 'll Show.

Irfan

hi all ,
this symbol also comes when you are using case in select statement

ex  :
select case when deptno=10 then 1 else 0 end from emp

and when you are using single row sub query in select statement

ex:
select empno,(select empno from emp where empno=7902) a from emp

Hi ranamirfan,

Thanks for your clarification,
I am getting the symbol only when i am placing a space between the not equal symbol(< >) in where clause of the query.
If i am not including the space(<>) then the symbol will not appears.
So can you please tell me the reason why it happens with the space.
