Access Vista Inquiries on the Web

Use Vista Web Office Tools to access the same SQL inquiries that you have access to in Vista on the web.

Vista inquiries allow you to link two or more queries together so that users can view specific information from a Work Center. Create and maintain inquiries and configure inquiry security settings in Vista. For information on setting up inquiries, see Creating Inquiries in Vista Help.
Note: User-defined inquiries and inquiries with drill-down capabilities are not available on the web.

In order to access Vista SQL inquiries:

  • You must be a licensed user of Vista Web Office Tools.
  • You must log in to the web portal using your Viewpoint ID single sign-on (SSO) account. For help configuring single sign-on, see Configure Your SSO Account.
  • You must have been given access to the inquiries in Vista.
