@SadokHanini @Naveen Boga Isn’t this possible by using a subreport?

Use the relations of the subreport as the query and then either call the subreport in or use a variable off the subreport in the main report?

Sadok, Can you please share the SQL View and DAC?

You need to maintain the Key fields in the DAC, otherwise, duplicate records will be displayed in reports.

@SadokHanini  Sorry, Report Designer will NOT support this requirement. 
We can not use it like this.

@SadokHanini So, you want to add a field in the report, and for that field, you want to add a SQL query to display the value?

Yes

Not directly. You can, however, create a T-SQL View and a DAC on top of it and you will then be able to use this just like any other table in the Report Designer and Generic Inquiries.

@Doug Johnson wrote a blog post on this topic. You can find it here: Technical Tuesday: Building Reports From an SQL View in Acumatica Cloud ERP Software

Hello Sadok,
You can use SQL queries like below in Report Designer.
 

  1. Create a SQL View for the SQL Query 
  2. Create a DAC for the SQL view.
  3. This DAC you can use in Report Designer :)
