Save Current Query dialog box
 
 
 
NoteThis functionality applies only to drawing objects.

Use this dialog box to save your current query. Once a query is saved, you can run it again later.

To save a query

Click Create tabObject Query panelLibrary. At the Command prompt, enter adequerylib.

Category List

Select a category to save your query in.

Use categories to organize queries. (When you run a query, you first select a category, and then see all the queries in that category.)

If you have only a few queries, you can save them all in the same category.

New Category

Display the Define New Category dialog box where you can create a new query category.

Name

Enter a name for the query. Query names cannot contain any spaces. Each query name must be unique.

Description

Enter a description for the query. Use a description that will help you remember the query when you look for it later.

Save to External File

Save the query to an external file instead of in the current drawing.

Specify a name for the file.

If you want the query description to appear in the current drawing query library, select Keep Reference In Library.

File name

Specify a name for the external file where you want to save the query. To select a different directory, click .

Each external query must be saved in a separate file.

Keep Reference In Library

If you save the query to an external file, select this check box to list the query description along with other queries in this drawing's query library.

Save List of Active Drawings

If this box is selected, the saved query specifies which drawings in the drawing set will be active when the query is executed.

If the box is not selected, the query searches whatever drawings are active when you execute the query.

Save Location Coordinates

If this box is selected, the coordinates for any location conditions are saved with the query.

If the box is not selected, you will need to specify the coordinates when you execute the query.

Save Alter Properties

If this box is selected, property alteration specified in the Set Property Alterations dialog box are saved with the query.

If the box is not selected, the property alterations are not saved with the query.

Auto Execute

If this box is selected, when you run the saved query, it is automatically executed.

If the box is not selected, the query is loaded as the active query, but is not executed until you click Execute Query in the Define Query dialog box.

If you save the query to an external file and do not keep a reference in the current drawing library, you do not need to provide a name or description for the query.
