Creating a worksheet for the QBE results


After designing your customized query using the QBE tool and interrogating the data mart that stores the analysis results, you can build a worksheet to represent the query results in charts or tables. You can also publish this worksheet and share it with other team members.

For further information on worksheets, refer to SpagoBI documentation.

Due to a limitation in SpagoBI, you cannot create worksheets for the QBE results when the data mart database type is MS SQL Server.

Before you begin

  • You have accessed Talend DQ Portal as a user.
  • A query has been created and executed on some analysis results in the datamart as outlined in Building a query.

About this task

In this example the query interrogates the results of an overview analysis, qbx_overview_tbi, in the datamart, retrieves the list of tables, their names and the number of rows in each.

To build a worksheet for the query results, do the following:


  1. Click the Preview in the top right corner of the page.
    A loading indicator is displayed and then the Results view opens displaying the results of the query.


  2. Click Worsksheet to open a view where you can add one or several worksheets to this interrogation.


  3. From the Palette, drop the chart or the table you want to use to display the query results to the right panel, a pie chart in this example.


  4. Click Selected fields at the bottom of the Palette, drop the element you want to use as category to the Category table and the element you want to use as query measures to the Series table.
  5. Select the check boxes of the information you want to show in the pie chart.
    It is not recommended to select the Show legend check box if you have profiled too many tables in the analysis. Otherwise you may have difficulty displaying the chart and the legend together in your browser.
    You can add several sheets to your interrogations through clicking the plus button at the bottom of the worksheet and represent the query results in different charts and tables.
  6. Click Preview to open the query results in a pie chart.


    You can hide/show each of the table partitions in the pie chart by clicking the table name in the chart legend, when the legend is displayed.
  7. Click the save icon in the top right corner of the page to open a form.
  8. Fill in the form and select a folder in which to save the worksheet, if needed. Click Save.
    The worksheet is saved in the selected folder and in the My analysis page.
  9. On the toolbar, click to open a page listing the saved worksheets.


    From this page, you can open the worksheet, clone or delete it.
